My favorite thisng to make after Thanksgiving is Turkey Noodle Soup. I have a great Day After Thanksgiving Turkey Noodle Soup. Well, my mom made a turkey for my birthday a few weeks ago and gave me the carcass. I wanted to use it to make soup. However, my daughter specifically requested a cream noodle soup. Of course, I abliged and new it would be a great new recipe to share with all of you. Hence, the result was this creamy turkey noodle soup.
It has all you would expect from a turkey noodle soup. This creamy turkey noodle soup has onion, clelery, carrots, turkey, and noodles. On the other hand, instead of a brothy base it has a rich creamy base. It’s pure comfort and another great dish to serve after Thanksgiving.
Now, when it comes to the noodles used in a homemade turkey or chicken noodle soup, my prefences is a homemade style noodle. But, I don’t make them. I buy them. There are two brands that I am able to find where I live. I use Country Pasta homemade style pasta or Essenhaus Amish Country Homemade Noodles. You can find them on amazon also. Mrs. Millers is another brand available on Amazon. I usually buy the basic noodle but you can also get an extra wide noodle. I have also used this but I keep the basic size on hand.
These noodles tend to take longer to cook than you regular run of the mill pasta. However, it is so worth the extra time for these delicious homemade style noodles. I also love that I only have to cook the noodles and not make them from scratch.
Another tip, when cooking soup with pasta, the noodles will cook more accurately if you cook them separate. That is what I chose to do with this sooup. It also halps shorten the cook time because you can have the noodles cooking in one pot, while the soup itself cooks in another pot.Print
