This soup is so full of Mediterranean flavor, and a great way to use up that leftover turkey! It only takes about 30 minutes to get this delicious soup on the table and into your tummy! How is that for a fast meal? The soup tastes even better the next day after the flavors have had a chance to blend. Don't forget the wine and crusty bread! Buon appetito!
