Holiday season is upon us. A time for cooking ALL the food and feeding ALL the people. Huge spreads of food for friends and family are rarely the perfect size for that one meal. That means you have TONS of leftovers. I love a good turkey sandwich but there are only so many that you can eat before you are tired of turkey sandwiches. This year, make this Slow Cooker Turkey Noodle Soup instead. It will use up your leftovers and you will have a light and delicious dinner that won’t feel like you are eating leftovers again.
This recipe includes the approximate measurements of the ingredients. It is intended to use what you have in your fridge. Feel free to add frozen vegetables if you don’t have fresh, but do not used canned if possible. Your Crock pot turkey noodle soup will be the better for it!
If you have the different spices in your pantry, use some of them to further season your soup. Spices such as :
Dried Dill – 1 – 2 tsp
Dried Italian Seasoning – ½ – 1 tsp
Dried chili flakes – pinch – ¼ tsp if you prefer mild spicy
Dried parsley – 1 – 2 tsp
