Added just a smidge more seasonings but otherwise followed the recipe and it turned out great. Good use for that leftover turkey carcass.

Just finished this morning making your soup with a little twist of my Cubab style cooking and the soup is super yummy. The whole family was over and they love it too!

This is the second time I'll try this in less than a year. It really isn't much work even for a very amateur cook like me.

There are also endless variations on the soup ingredients. Instead of stewed tomatoes I put in diced tomatoes. Instead of pasta I put in barley because stands up better to slow-cooking.

This makes the best turkey soup I've ever had. This is the second year in a row that I've used this recipe with our Thanksgiving turkey carcass. I leave out the tomatoes and only use 1-1/2 cups of pasta.
