Leftovers – A Soup-er Sunday Version

My husband insisted we get a big turkey. Five people plus a baby does not equal a 20 pound turkey. Needless to say, we have a lot of leftovers. So today I brought back Soup-er Sunday. I’m recycling this recipe from last years cooking streak. I can’t believe I found time to cook soup every Sunday. Maybe next year Chet can be my helper and Soup-er Sundays will be back for good. For now, her is a soup-er yummy recipe that I modified for Thanksgiving leftovers.

Thank you Becoming Betty for the original recipe.

Today’s Soup: Chicken  Turkey Tortellini Soup

2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups carrots, peeled and cut into diagonal slices
2 cups celery, diced small
1-2 T. Italian seasoning
1 bay leaf
2 boxes of chicken turkey broth
16 ounces cheese tortellini (packaged in the refrigerator section at the store) I bought the dried bag of Ravioli from Trader Joes. $1.99 a bag. You can’t beat that!
4-5 cups cooked shredded chicken turkey
1 chicken bullion cube
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Parmesan Cheese to top

Chet loved it! Cole did too! And of course this didn’t put a dent in our leftovers. Anyone else have any good recipe ideas?
