My daughter got this recipe from her husband's mother. As in many households, our turkey gets picked over for a few days after the holidays. When the carcass is almost clean, it's time to make soup! This soup is especially good on cold winter nights when it's snowing...which happens a lot where I live!
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.
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.

"While trying to reproduce my favorite soup from an Italian restaurant's menu, I hit upon this tasty combination of turkey sausage, broth and mushrooms," pens Thomas Licking of Green Lake, Wisconsin. Fennel, caraway seeds and herb seasoning give the quick-to-fix soup plenty of flavor without adding salt. Serve it steaming hot alongside a crisp salad and bread for a well-rounded meal.
This tasty soup has a surprisingly short simmering time. Leftover turkey has never tasted so good! If you don't have frozen mixed vegetables on hand, stir in extra veggies from your Thanksgiving meal until heated through.
