While trying to find a creative use for leftover turkey, we decided to add gnocchi instead of noodles. My 8-year-old daughter always asks for more. If you don't have leftover turkey, a rotisserie chicken works just as well. —Amy Babines, Virginia Beach, Virginia

"I'm giving this 5 stars because my son asked for a second bowl, that rarely happens. I substituted 6 cups broth for the water/chicken base. Instead of the gnocchi, you could also use tortellini."

"Everyone really enjoyed this soup and it was super easy. I would give 4.5 stars if I could but didn't quite make it to the "best thing I ever ate" status to give 5 stars. Definitely will make again."

"I decided to use chicken broth instead of water and chicken base. I also used frozen mix of peas, corn, carrots, and green beans. Probably won't make it again. It was just average."

"Wonderful idea! Loved it. Tried this with both turkey and rotisserie chicken, both great. I slightly decreased the garlic and added a few extra veggies (celery and fresh spinach). I am adding it to my regular winter recipe menu."
