  • Summary

    A leftover turkey carcass is used to make a delicious broth, which is then used to make a warming soup akin to the Italian favorite tortellini en brodo. The recipe is written for 1 pound of carcass -- for each additional pound, double the aromatic ingredients (carrot, onion, celery, parsley and peppercorns; do not add more bay leaves) used to enhance the broth's flavor. For more tortellini, you will need about 8 cups turkey broth for every 9 ounces of tortellini.

    Ingredients

    • 1 coarsely chopped large carrot
    • 1 coarsely chopped onion
    • 1 coarsely chopped celery stalk
    • A few sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 5 whole black peppercorns
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1 pound leftover turkey carcass, cut up into smaller pieces
    • Coarse salt
    • 1 packed cup baby-spinach leaves
    • 2 cups shredded leftover turkey meat
    • 9 ounces tortellini
