    I thought that this was a bit bland. If I make it again, I would definitely add some type of hot sauce to spice it up a bit.

    Why is this listed under "low carb" recipes? Not even close to being low carb!

    Decent, but not something I would make again. Not particularly flavorful but a good meal my daughter would eat. A little on the thin side, as I prefer more of a stew-like consistency. I would thicken it up if I were to make it again.

    this was super yummy, I used the thanksgiving turkey and now we are making a turkey for Christmas just to have it again!!! I used chunks of pumpkin instead though.

    Love this soup. Pumpkin is a great way to get a thicker broth without adding a lot of calories. It was a little bland for us so we added more pepper, oregano and Lawry's season salt. Very yummy. Definitely a keeper.

    I used chicken cuz it was cheaper than turkey. I had to double the seasonings listed and just kept adding seasonings till it tasted good to me. I know I added some poultry seasoning as suggested by another reviewer as well as oregano, Italian seasoning, and seasoned salt. I definitely added the Parmesan cheese and some hot sauce to my serving. By then, it was quite tasty!

    I used ground turkey, substituted a yellow bell pepper for the celery and added a half bag of fresh spinach. De-lish. Tasted like it took hours.
