This soup was a huge hit in my house, and my husband is not a soup eater. I made a few changes by adding 1/2 chopped onion, 2 chopped large carrots and 2 chopped celery ribs to the butter until softened. I threw all of the turkey bones and carcass in a pot with celery, fresh parsley, thyme and 8 peppercorns and boiled for two hours. Strained that and used that broth in place of the chicken broth. I also used large macaroni in the place of the egg noodles. The seasonings were perfect. A great winter night meal.

WOW!!! This is rich, and extremely tasty. I used leftover rotisserie chicken instead of turkey and it turned out great. I did cut the lemon pepper in half because mine can be salty, but that was a mistake. I would use the entire amount next time. I also would use all chicken broth instead of part water as well. I did add some shredded carrot in for color and next time I think some sauteed celery would also be a nice touch. This is a fantastic soup. You will not be disapoointed if you try it.

This was a sinfully rich way to use up some left over turkey. I added some sauted onion, garlic, carrot, and celery to get in some veggies. I halved the recipe but accidently added a full amount of noodles. It turned out more like a dish than a soup. It still tasted great. I will try this with chicken next time. Cooks beware, you can't eat more than 1 bowl as it is too rich.
