This recipe comes from a number of years of playing in the kitchen. I find that the addition of beef stock to the recipe adds depth to a usually bland soup. Any type of pasta can be used.

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat; saute celery, carrots, onion, parsley, and bay leaf until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add beef stock, chicken stock, turkey, salt, and pepper to vegetable mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover pot with a lid, and simmer until soup is heated through, about 15 minutes.
  2. Stir rotini into soup and cook until pasta is tender yet firm to the bite, about 15 minutes.

Pure comfort food! Easy to make with leftover turkey. The beef stock adds a depth of flavor without calling attention to itself. The only change I made was using turkey shaped pasta in place of the rotini.

Needed a recipe to use some of my leftover Thanksgiving turkey and this soup was a great one. A little bland until I added some garlic powder and cayenne pepper because I like some spice. Other than that I followed the recipe. My family enjoyed it very much. Very easy.

Great recipe! Added 6oz of craisins and replaced rotini with 1 cup orzo. Don't let simmer too long. "Soup" portion will evaporate. Very large portion so I froze half of it for later. Best to add orzo or other pasta as you eat the soup so it doesn't turn to mush. Frozen in ziploc freezer bags.
