I found this in TOH holiday. A great easy way to use up leftover turkey.

I'm late in writing this, sorry. This soup is wonderful. I've made it many times and my family loves it. It's great microwaved as leftovers, too. The only things that I did differently is to delete savory and peas. Wonderful, wonderful. YUM!!!
