This recipe is simple to prepare, and it makes a lot of delicious soup! Our children are on their own now, so I was happy to find that this soup freezes well, too. I put it in individual containers and thaw just as much as I need for quick and easy meals. That's handy when I'm busy braiding wool rugs, oil painting or sewing...or just busy period.
I love serving this savory soup to lunch guests. Italian turkey sausage gives the broth just the right spice. I never cooked much when I was growing up, so when I got out on my own, I found that great recipes like this can make anyone a good cook.

"You'll love this quick-and-easy way to jazz up a can of soup," comments Laurie Todd of Columbus, Mississippi. Enjoy the comforting results in a snap by using leftover turkey and convenient ramen noodles.
Simmering up a big pot of this soup is one of my favorite holiday traditions. This is a variation on a recipe my mom made while I was growing up. My husband and children can't get enough of the tender dumplings.
"Turkey and tomatoes are high on my list of favorite foods," writes Carol Brunelle of Ascutney, Vermont. "My husband grows the best tomatoes ever...and I made up this recipe to complement both ingredients. It's wonderful anytime of year, but I prefer to make it when the tomatoes, green peppers, basil and garlic are all fresh from our garden."
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
