Turkey Noodle Soup for Two

Doris Nehoda writes from Coos Bay, Oregon, "My husband must eat a very low-fat diet, so I'm always experimenting to find thins that will agree with his stomach, too. This easy economical recipe makes two generous servings. Sometimes I substitute chicken, or a different pasta or vegetable."

    I cooked a wild turkey that I had in the freezer and this worked perfect to use up some of it as there are only 2 of us now. It was quite delicious and I am diabetic as well as have heart failure so this is a blessing to find and is easy and quick to make too. I have fresh zucchine in my garden no so added some of that and next time I will also add some of the yellow squash just to give it some additional color. I think celery would also be a good addition and not add fat or very many calories either. Quite a diversied recipe really, I think you could add most any veggies on hand. Thanks for posting.
