Delicious leftover turkey soup


Delicious leftover turkey soup -the perfect meal to use up all that turkey.

I’m a big sucker for soup. Especially with all this cold weather and snow we have been getting. Brrr! Some of my favorites are potato soup, taco soup and Pasta e fagioli. This turkey soup is definitely another favorite of mine.

I know most of you are going to be looking for a recipe to make to use up all that leftover turkey after Thanksgiving. Definitely give this soup a try. If you love chicken noodle soup, you will love this soup too. It is very filling and also pretty healthy too. My whole family loved it and the kids gobbled this soup right up. We’ll definitely be making it again this weekend.
