  • Ready In

  1. Combine chicken broth, turkey carcass, onion quarters, carrot halves, celery halves, and bay leaves in a slow cooker.
  2. Cook on High for 4 hours. Carefully strain broth, discard solids, and transfer broth to a bowl. Rinse slow cooker.
  3. Pour broth back into slow cooker; add chopped carrots, chopped celery, and chopped onion.
  4. Cook on Low for 3 hours. Add penne pasta to slow cooker; cook for 2 1/2 more hours.
  5. Mix turkey meat and cream of mushroom soup into soup and cook for 30 more minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • This recipe can be adapted to the stove top for a shorter cook time (saute veggies before adding them to the broth).
  • Although I prefer the onion and celery minced, the carrots and turkey meat should be cut into larger bite-sized pieces.
  • Editor's Note:
  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the carcass and vegetables in the broth. The actual amount of these ingredients consumed will vary.

I thought this was a little bland. I added chopped fresh parsley and chicken seasoning for a quick fix. Overall easy to make.

It is a great idea. Trying this now. Will see how it turns out.
