In a large soup pot, brown and crumble the Italian sausage. Remove sausage from pot. Reserve 1 tbsp. of the sausage dripping and discard the remaining drippings.
Saute onion and garlic in reserved drippings until onion is soft. Stir in beef broth, wine, tomatoes, carrots, tomato sauce, basil, oregano and cooked Italian sausage. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, covered, for 30 minutes.
Skim any fat off the top of the soup. Stir in zucchini. Simmer covered for 20 minutes. Add the gnocchi and cook uncovered until the gnocchi begin to float, about 3-5 minutes.
Sprinkle each serving with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
