    NJstixx's Note:

    I love Turkey and I love soup, so there's no way I'm getting rid of that Turkey carcass. This is my basic chicken soup recipe with Turkey instead. The garlic and tomato sauce add terrific flavor and nice color. I'll eat it all year round.

      We really didn't enjoy this at all. It was bland and had too much liquid for the amount of solids. Part of this could be because I decided not to add egg noodles, which were not an ingredient but listed as an afterthought in the last step. Part of it could be because I simmered the soup with the lid on the pot. The recipe instructions were really not specific enough. In fact, step 3 says to add the "remaining" chicken broth. ?? This is the first time the broth was mentioned. I also would have liked to know how much pepper and which/how much fresh herbs to add. I added about a handful of parsley. I am sure this recipe has potential but I won't be trying it again.
