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.

  3. awesome recipe will make it again.

  4. Why would use several dollars worth of purchased chicken broth when you can make delicious turkey broth by simmering your turkey carcass for a couple of hours? Can also pick those bones and salvage enough turkey for your soup. Save the nice sliced turkey leftovers for another entire meal. Otherwise the recipe is fine. Standard soup recipe, start with mirapois/sofrito, add other ingredients according to what kind of soup you’re making. For example, pork is great with any kind of bean soup (I use the bag of dried 15 kinds of bean.) Ham is great with green split peas or dried lima beans. And of course chicken with noodles or rice for classic chicken soup.
