Turkey Noodle Soup

I'm baaack!  After my own much needed 2 week Christmas break, I'm back with a another great healthy recipe for you.  I know many of you are looking at tons of leftovers in your refridgerator from the holidays, well my turkey noodle soup, is a great answer for them.  I had 1/2 a turkey in my fridge, and honestly, we're all getting a little sick of turkey sandwiches.  Plus the hubs is a little under the weather, so soup is what's for dinner!  My recipe is hearty, healthy, and super yummy... Here you go!

Turkey Noodle Soup
Serves 4,  Total Time 20 minutes

1 tbs olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1 sweet onion, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup carrots, chopped
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp ground sage
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 cups shredded turkey (or chicken)
2 cups uncooked pasta (I used brown rice rotini)
1 (15 oz) can cannellini beans, drained & rinsed
2-3 cups fresh baby spinach
Salt & pepper to taste

Heat oil in a large cast iron pot over medium-high heat.  Add garlic, onion, celery, and carrots, sweat veggies.  Add thyme & sage, stir to blend.  Add broth, turkey, pasta, and beans.  Stir well, and bring to a boil.  Add spinach, then reduce heat to low. Simmer for about 15 minutes, until noodles are tender.  Ladle into bowls, serve, eat... Yum!!
