Prepare the Ingredients
Mince garlic. Trim zucchini ends, quarter, and cut into ½" dice.
Remove Italian sausage from casing, if necessary.
Cook the Sausage
Place a large pot over medium heat with 2 tsp. olive oil. Add sausage to hot pot and break up with a spoon until no pink remains and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 6-7 minutes.
Remove sausage to a plate. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.
Start the Soup
Return pot used to cook sausage to medium heat. Add garlic and tomato paste to hot pot. Stir constantly until fragrant, 30-60 seconds.
Add sherry and stir occasionally, scraping bottom of pot to loosen any brown bits, until reduced by half, 1-2 minutes.
Finish the Soup
Add diced tomatoes, mirepoix base, ¼ tsp. salt, and 5 cups water to pot. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir in zucchini and orzo. Return to a boil. Once boiling, stir occasionally until orzo is tender, 8-10 minutes.
Stir in cream base and sausage until combined and heated through, 5-8 minutes.
Remove from burner.
