All the wonderful flavors of Thanksgiving come together in this easy recipe for turkey noodle soup!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped fine
  • 2 large carrots, chopped fine
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 6 cups chicken broth (I like Imagine and Pacific brands)
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 cup small pasta (orichiette, elbows, tiny shells, etc),
  • 8 ounces baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese plus extra for garnish


  1. Heat oil in large heavy pot over medium heat. Add sage, oregano and thyme and sauté until fragrant, about one minute.
  2. Add ground turkey to the pot and sauté until just browned, breaking it up into small pieces as you stir. Stir in tomato paste, celery, carrots and parsley.
  3. Add 5 cups of the chicken broth and the wine and bring to a simmer. Add the pasta, partially cover the pot and cook until pasta is tender, about 10-12 minutes depending on the type of pasta you pick – check the cooking instructions.
  4. Add the spinach and stir until wilted and depending on how thick you like your soup, you can add that final cup of broth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Ladle soup into bowls. Garnish with cheese and serve.
