I love a good crock pot soup. Especially on a day like today. There’s a big Nor’Easter heading our way, about to dump a foot of snow on us. Not that we aren’t used to a little bit of snow in Syracuse, but well, it’s still perfect weather for a good old fashioned bowl of soup!
I made a similar version of this soup not too long ago, except with chicken. The recipe is about the same, except that I substituted anything that was chicken, with turkey.
1 fresh turkey breast (about 1 lb.)
4 cups turkey broth
1 cup chopped carrots, pre-cooked
1/2 cup pasta (I used Stelline pasta, pictured below. They are little stars.)
Salt, pepper and minced onion, to taste
1-2 cups additional water
Place turkey and turkey broth in crock pot and cook on medium for 6-8 hours. Remove the turkey, place in bowl to shred. Return shredded turkey to the crock pot. Toss in the carrots and pasta. Cook for another 30-45 minutes (or longer is fine). Stir occasionally. You may need to add more hot water, the pasta will soak up a lot of the water once it is added.
Serve soup with rolls or crackers. Enjoy!
