Original recipe yields 16 servings

Directions

  1. Place turkey carcass in a large pot or Dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer for 1 hour. Remove carcass and allow to cool. Separate turkey meat from the bones. Cut meat into bite-size pieces; discard bones. Reserve about 12 cups turkey broth in a large bowl. Save remaining broth for another use.
  2. Melt butter in another large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat; cook and stir onion, carrots, and celery in melted butter until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir flour into vegetable mixture; cook and stir until smooth, about 5 minutes. Gradually stir in about 1/3 the reserved turkey broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  3. Stir remaining turkey broth, turkey meat, half-and-half, fettuccine, stuffing, salt, chicken bouillon, pepper, and poultry seasoning into half-and-half mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until noodles are tender, about 10 minutes more.

This is a very creamy and yummy soup! It makes a ton so I froze at least half of it. I was amazed that I got 3 cups of turkey off of the carcass which I thought I had pretty well picked over. I put the carcass in a crockpot and slow cooked it all night. Make sure you add at least 12 cups of water if you want to get this many servings. I followed the recipe except I didn't have any stuffing to put it. Hubby thought it needed more zip so I added a T of Santa Fe Blend & about a half C of onion & garlic croutons. I also upped the amount of fettucine to 8 oz. as we like lots of noodles. I broke the sticks of fettucine into 4ths, but next time I'll break them into smaller pieces as they'll be easier to eat. Yummmmm!

Love it! I have made this several times and it's my go to recipe. I never add the stuffing because I don't seem to have any around and it's still fantastic.
