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, VA

"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."
