    ellie_'s Note:

    I always make this soup the day after Thankgiving or anytime we have a turkey carcass. It is very adaptable depending what vegetables and pasta that you have on hand. Some years for a change of pace I use uncooked rice instead of the pasta. Recipe adapted from Bon Appetit (October 1985)

      Cool, never tried to brown the carcass before. Soup came out great, very similar to mine but I never used sage and garlic. I think it will become my standard. Didn't add the pasta since my daughter is going carb free, but a very good soup. Thanks for a great dinner on a cold night ellie! Made for PRMR Nov 2012

      This made a great tasting soup for dinner tonight. I used lima beans, ring shaped pasta, about a1/4 can diced tomatoes leftover in the fridge, and a little leftover gravy. Thanks Ellie!
