Turkey Tomato Soup

Turkey and tomatoes are high on my list of favorite foods. My husband grows the best tomatoes ever and I made up this recipe to complement both ingredients. It's wonderful anytime of year, but I prefer to make it when the tomatoes, green peppers, basil and garlic are all fresh from our garden. —Carol Brunelle, Ascutney, Vermont

    This was a great recipe, however, 10 minutes of prep time is not accurate. In order to seed and chop 8 large tomatoes takes a LOT longer than 10 minutes, plus everything else (including cooking the turkey and pasta!) But, it's worth it. I added some corn, carrots, canned whole tomatoes, garlic salt, table salt, two extra garlic cloves and an additional can of chicken broth. I do not have a Dutch Oven, so I simmered everything in a soup pot for about 45 minutes, while cooking the turkey and pasta ahead of time and added them after 45 minutes of simmer time. I simmered for another 15 minutes and it was done! Delicous!
