Turkey Noodle Soup

Oh man, a post about something besides dessert? I am branching out. This is a proud moment.
We went to my mother-in-law's house for dinner on Sunday. She had cooked a turkey and so kindly gave me the carcass. Hooray! Hmmm, how many people get excited over a turkey carcass? Me and my dad's dog. I boiled the carcass (yuck) in enough water to just cover it for about an hour. Then I strained the liquid and was left with a beautiful stock for soup (Yum).
So if you are lucky enough to get your hands on a fresh turkey carcass, make yourself some yummy, hearty soup!

Turkey Noodle Soup

1 quart turkey stock
2 cups turkey- diced
2 cups celery- diced
2 cups carrots- diced
1 medium onion- diced
1 recipe fresh pasta- see post below
Salt and pepper to taste

Boil celery, carrots, and onion in just enough water to cover until fork tender. Add turkey stock, turkey and bring back to a boil. Add noodles and boil for 4-5 minutes more, stirring often. Season with salt and pepper to taste. I like mine with lots of pepper. Enjoy!

If you think the soup looks good, you've really gotta taste it! I've tasted this EXACT soup (Thanks, Mindy!), and it is YUM! My favorite part was the homemade noodles. James' was the veggies. Fantastic job, and great recipe!

thank you for sharing this fab blog! I think personal and family cookbook blogs are great. and I love making soup. The last couple times I make stock it turned out tasting funny- I think I cooked it too long and it just starts tasting like bones. Good for dogs, but I'd rather taste turkey or chicken. Next time I will follow your lead and just cook for 1 hour.
