Italian Turkey Macaroni Soup
Italian Turkey Macaroni Soup

Just when I think I couldn’t love a soup more than my Classic Beef and Tomato Macaroni Soup, I turned around and made an Italian Turkey version.

I honestly don’t know which one I love more now. The original beef and tomato macaroni soup is so darn homey-comfort food-amazing that it still is in my Top 5 soups of all time and will most likely never leave those ranks. This soup however, is a nice new taste, lighter thanks to the turkey and if you used whole wheat macaroni? I would consider this almost entirely guilt free, I kid you not.

Did I mention that everyone ate this? Even my daughter? Oh, parents of picky eaters, hang in there. The dawn of a new era of eating is coming, it only takes close to a decade, but your kids will start eating other foods.  My daughter loves turkey and chicken, tomatoes and noodles, so it was a relatively easy job to convince her to try it. Once she did, she ate the entire bowl.

This is also the perfect soup to warm your soul and belly at the end of a miserable winter day. Or even the end of a sunny Phoenix day for me. There’s just something about a tomato and macaroni soup that just can’t be beat!

Happy Cooking everyone!

Love you more than chocolate,
