Had leftover turkey and broth. Doubled the recipe, left out celery, added some broccoli, used cooked brown rice. I had to use a homemade cream soup instead of alfredo bcz of dairy allergies. I would reduce the thyme next time, and I added garlic, salt and pepper (my broth was low salt). I also sauteed the carrots first, then put everything in (except the cream soup) and cooked for 10 minutes. Even with the changes, this turned out very good and nice for a cold night.
