  1. Place the beans into a large bowl, fill the bowl with water, and cover the bowl with a cloth. Allow to soak overnight. Drain and rinse the beans.
  2. Place the soaked beans, turkey legs, onion, and bay leaves into a large soup pot, cover with water, then bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 3 hours. Remove bay leaves, and discard. Remove the turkey legs from the broth, separate the meat from the bones and tendons, and return the meat to the broth. Stir in celery, carrots, diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper; simmer until the celery and carrots are tender, about 1 hour. Serve in bowls and sprinkle each serving with about 1 teaspoon of Parmesan cheese.

awesome - added about 2 tsp. thyme and tarragon Update: have made this 3 tims and doubled each time as my daughter and family love it. Freezes well.

This was really, really good. The smokey flavor of the turkey legs made this a very hearty soup on a cold night. Served it with garlic bread and a tossed salad. Next time I will add chicken broth as added liquid while it is cooking instead of water. I also did not add any salt as the smoked turkey added enough saltiness.

I did not care for this. Although made according to the directions [exactly] 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning is way too much and is the only thing you can taste. I don't know if the writer made a typo, but I suggest if you try to make this cut the seasoning way back. I will make it again, but skip the seasoning altogether and use a bit of my favorites.
