How to Make Homemade Leftover Turkey Noodle Soup Recipe

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions set aside.
  2. Add 2 Tbsp of oil to the bottom of a large soup pot.
  3. Sweat vegetables and herbs in pan. This basically means to heat, stirring frequently, until just tender. You do not want to brown them.
  4. Add stock to vegetables and bring to a simmer.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  6. Cut up cooked turkey and add to vegetables. Add pasta. The pasta soaks up seasoning so taste and see if you want to add more at this point.
  7. Simmer for 10 minutes and serve.
