Recipe by Mean Mary
Don't let the title throw you. This soup is really tasty. The secret is that you really need to start with homemade Turkey broth and preparing that is not included in the prep time. Served with a fresh roll or hot biscuit, this is an easy meal. It also keeps well in the freezer. Barb was the apartment manager back when I lived in Gig Harbor WA.
