Warm Up with Soup's Simple Goodness

Turkey Mac Soup

(Family Features) Hearty, homemade, family-friendly soup is a welcome warmer on a chilly night - especially during this busy season.

For instance, this Turkey Mac Soup can be on the table in 30 minutes, but tastes like it simmered for hours. Start with leftover turkey from the holiday meal. Or, if you prefer, chicken works just as well, if that's what's on hand. No leftovers? No problem; use rotisserie turkey or chicken.

Next, a savory combo of sautéed vegetables, accented with poultry seasoning to add a quick flavor boost, is simmered in chicken broth. You can vary the vegetables according to what's in the fridge, or family preferences. Add the turkey and ladle over cooked elbows for a delicious meal in a bowl. 

Add even more nutritious benefits by using Dreamfields pasta. Made from durum wheat semolina, Dreamfields has the taste and texture of traditional pasta. However, its unique recipe provides just 5 grams of digestible carbs and 5 grams of fiber in a 1-cup cooked serving. This makes it ideal for anyone who wants to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, balance energy and improve digestive health.

Soup's on. Enjoy.
