ITALIAN TURKEY BURGER SOUP


This has become one of our favorite soup recipes. This Italian Turkey Burger Soup is both healthy and hearty made with lean ground turkey. Yum
With wind chills down in the teens this week, dinner calls for soup in the rotation!! 
I tend to use ground turkey in many of, if not most of, my recipes that call for ground beef. While a great filet or juicy hamburger is good occasionally, we try to not fix too much red meat. Even my chili is with ground turkey, the boys don't even notice the difference and my husband loves it, in fact our meatballs are always make with ground turkey.
This soup is easy and so satisfying all year round. Plus the leftovers are spectacular.
