No-Fuss Turkey Noodle Soup

"Make good use of your leftover dark meat without the fuss of boiling the carcass. Simply pick through the carcass before you toss the bird and save the meat for a quick next-day soup. Serve with warm bread for a great hot meal on a cold winter day. I substitute fresh herbs wherever possible, but for a quick meal after the intense preparation of a whole turkey, dried herbs do nicely. If you don't have chipotle chili powder, regular chili powder can be substituted. The chipotle provides a very light smoky flavor in the background. White meat can be used, but your broth will be less flavorful. Leftovers freeze well. Use whatever type pasta you prefer."

Very good. Somehow I misjudged the calculations for larger portions, but I rescued it. I added rosemary to the homemde noodles I made and that was excellent.

I did actually boil the carcass, and served it with dumplings, but what I liked about this recipe was the chipotle and the sherry. Thought the addition of those kicked it up a notch and my family went crazy for it.

Very good flavor and use of leftover smoked turkey. Don't skip the sautéing of the onion and celery. That really mellows the flavor so that the herbs added still shine through. Will definitely make again!
