Contest-Winning Turkey Meatball Soup Recipe

Contest-Winning Turkey Meatball Soup Recipe

You don't need to cook the tender homemade meatballs or boil the egg noodles separately, so you can easily stir up this savory soup in no time. I usually double the recipe for our family of seven. —Carol Losier Baldwinsville, New York

"Very delicious, healthy and simple soup! I added a little pinch of red pepper flakes to the beginning to give the broth a nice spice. Only thing I will do different next is add a little more seasonings to the turkey meat."
