If you or your kids love Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup, here's a super simple recipe to make its twin at home yourself using leftover Thanksgiving turkey. The best part is, you can put more noodles or turkey in if you hate the way they skimp in the canned stuff.
For the broth, I always strain the juices from under my turkey and store them in jars in the fridge. This coagulates into a jelly-like substance. You can use your "turkey jelly," as I call it, or use chicken broth. Also, I add some frozen spinach to mine. Not much, just enough to give it some added nutrients. There's no taste and my daughter doesn't even notice it.
Thanksgiving Turkey Noodle Soup
5 cups water
1/4 cup "turkey jelly" or use chicken broth in place of the water above
1 cup cooked, diced turkey breast
1 tbsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 to 5 cups cooked spaghetti noodles, sliced or broken before cooking
1 small handful frozen or diced spinach (optional)
Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil. Serve hot.
