Thick & hearty this Turkey Macaroni Vegetable Soup is a delicious family dinner.
We don’t do a lot of soup around my house. Mainly, because it’s not really a favorite of my husband or kids. I love soup though, so I have to squeeze it into the menu some times. So when we do soup, I try to keep it chocked full of yummy ingredients & very hearty.
This soup is similar to Kerry’s Hamburger Vegetable Soup which is a favorite around my house. However, I used ground turkey in this one to lighten it up and it’s what I had on hand. You could use ground beef, chicken, or venison if you prefer.
I made this soup when I had a friend and her kids over for lunch one day and both kids and adults liked it. This was the same day I made my Cinnamon Peach Streusel Cookies, so it was nice to get the soup going and not have to worry about it.
