Turkey Noodle Soup


Even though I don't cook a lot of meat any more, I do take advantage and support the local poultry club. They raise happy healthy turkeys for Thanksgiving, and well, they are delicious. I knew I wasn't going to be in town for Thanksgiving, but I got one anyways. Had a nice post Thanksgiving dinner and then froze leftovers and make stock out of the carcass. The past week I used the last of what I had left to make the last batch of Turkey Noodle Soup. It is not really a recipe, but I wanted to post something. For this last dinner, I sauteed onions, carrots, and celery in a bit of olive oil. I believe some people may call that a sofrito! Add salt and pepper, and about 2 cups turkey broth. That was all I had left! Then I added 3-4 cups vegetable broth. Turns out, that is the perfect ratio. Let it come to a boil, an added 1 cup macaroni. Cooked until done, then added the turkey to heat up.

I served it with a salad and homemade bread. This is the one the kids actually love, and by love, I mean they pick out the past and leave the rest.
