Turkey Soup


For 1 people

  • 6 pound(s) turkey breast with bones (with at least 2 C meat)
  • 2 medium onions
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1 teaspoon(s) dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon(s) dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 dash(es) black pepper
  • 1/2 pound(s) Italian pastina or pasta


Place turkey breast in large 6-quart pot. Cover with water until at least 3/4 full. Peel onions, cut into large pieces, and add to pot. Wash celery stalks, slice, and add to pot. Simmer covered for about 21/2 hours. Remove carcass from pot. Divide soup into smaller, shallower containers for quick cooling in refrigerator. After cooling, skim off fat. While soup cools, remove remaining meat from turkey carcass. Cut into pieces. Add turkey meat to skimmed soup, along with herbs and spices. Bring to boil and add pastina. Continue cooking on low boil for about 20 minutes, until pastina is done. Serve at once or refrigerate for later reheating.
