With just a few vegetables, some noodles, and a bit of love, you can recreate this classic with all your leftover turkey.

It’s so good, you may find yourself buying extra turkeys just to make this soup!

Or, use leftover chicken (rotisserie chickens are great) and make this one every time you want comfort in a bowl or feel a cold coming on.

I have just one more note to add: Sometimes I use more than 8 ounces of noodles. Now, egg noodles can expand out of control pretty easily, so be careful. But if you love noodles, feel free to use more than just 8 ounces.
