Leftover Turkey Soup

Trying to think of a way to use your leftover turkey? I love this turkey soup recipe. Make sure you save the drippings from the turkey pan. I pour it into a bowl, let it cool. Place the lid on it and put it in the refrigerator until I am ready to use it. When I take it out there is usually a thick portion of fat on the top. I skim it off and then use the gelled portion left on the bottom.

Leftover turkey deboned, skinned and chopped into bite size pieces
Drippings from turkey pan
1 Package of Shirataki Linguine (rinsed well)
1 Butternut squash chopped
1 Vidalia onion diced
5 carrots peeled and diced (you can use baby carrots if you prefer)
1 whole stock of celery diced
1 clove diced garlic
1 TBS Poultry seasoning
Salt and Pepper to taste

Start by putting the gelled drippings in a large pot and water so the pot is filled about ¾ full. Now add all other ingredients. Cook on low until all veggies are done. Keep an eye on it because mine tried to boil over at times. Stir as needed.

MMMmmmm It makes the house smell like Grandma's!

Really easy and really good! FYI the Shirataki Linguini tasted like egg noodles to me. Pete didn’t even know they were not regular noodles!;-D
