Delicious One Pot Leftover Turkey Soup

We are a little out of sync this week but I wanted to get this recipe to you sooner than later….I am hoping you still have some of your turkey left overs.  I have a huge container sitting in my fridge and I am going to make this soup tomorrow…It is such a good and easy recipe and a great way to use up all of your leftovers.   I like to cook the pasta and add it afterwards.  Not everyone in my house likes pasta in their soup…go figure!!!!  Bon Appetit!!!
