This is a really hearty bowl of soup – It’s a beautiful Turkey and Pasta Soup that will fill you up when you need it and warm you up on a cold day. A good time to make this Turkey and Pasta Soup would probably be after boxing day – you will get away from cooking a long dinner and the taste is amazing too without all the extra hard work.
I always buy a large turkey although my family only eat the white meat – well that’s okay by me as I can find plenty of uses for the rest of the meat. Besides, if I buy just the crown of turkey it seems to double in price, so why do that when I can buy the whole turkey? I cut the legs off for a stew, then the wings for some soup, and I end up with a lovely crown. This way everyone is happy!
It is easy to miss out at Christmas – all the good programmes on TV, playing games with the family etc as you can end up stuck in the kitchen preparing the feast – if you make this soup on boxing day, then you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy all the stuff going on at this time of year, as well as eating all the nuts that no one really wants! (I could say chocolates but that is one thing I’m not so keen on – no matter how special they are!)
Enough of me…. grab your self a glass and let’s cook:
