Of all things I make with leftovers, turkey noodle soup is near the very top of my favorites! It just feels good to enjoy a meal made with so many great flavors!
I make a killer Slow Cooker Turkey Bean Soup recipe that everyone raves about and this soup is another one that my family just can’t get enough of!
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, diced
2 whole carrots, sliced
4 stalks of celery, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
6 cups chicken broth, low sodium
1 can petite diced tomatoes (14.5 oz)
3-4 cups cooked turkey
6 oz dry rotini noodles
Cook onion, celery, carrots and garlic in olive oil and butter over medium heat about 5 minutes or until softened.
Stir in flour and seasonings. Cook 2 minutes.
Add broth, tomatoes and turkey. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered for 35-40 minutes.
Remove cover and stir in rotini. Cook 15-20 minutes or until pasta is tender.
