I first tasted this tempting hot turkey salad at a club dinner. Now I serve it at home, and there are never any leftovers. The popover "bowl" is a unique way of serving that always draws comments.

We take turns cooking Sunday meals at my church, and this soup is always popular. It's a smart way to use zucchini, and people seem to enjoy the cheese tortellini as well as the Italian turkey sausage. -Pamela Smith of Flushing, New York
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

Make the most of leftover turkey with this down-home soup. Creating a broth by roasting the turkey, garlic and vegetables adds richness and depth to the flavor without the need for additional fats. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
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!
"For years, my mother has stuffed a holiday turkey with this moist dressing," comments Kathi Graham of Naperville, Illinois. "Now I do the same thing. Its special flavor nicely compliments the tender, juicy slices of oven-roasted turkey."
“My husband and I first tasted this soup in a restaurant and just loved it,” recalls KayLyn VanderVeen in Grand Rapids, Michigan. “Because I’m diabetic, I came up with this healthier—but just as tasty—version!”
TIP: SERVE WITH CRUSTY ROLLS AND A GREEN SALAD FOR A VERY HEARTY MEAL, KAYLYN SUGGESTS.
