Soup on the Fly!

I was talking with a friend today and the topic of soup came up. With fall just around the corner the idea of bountiful, hot soup sounded so good and I had a hankering for some soup tonight. I took a look in my pantry to see what I could use and here's what I came up with.
I added a scoop of diced tomatoes and sliced fresh spinach to my bowl
and then poured that beautiful hot soup over the top! Mmmm...Dalish!

20oz pkg 97% fat free Ground Turkey
6 celery stalks cut on a diagonal
3 carrots, sliced or julienned
1 or two cans of cannellini beans
1-2 cups of whole wheat noodles
1/2 large onions, diced
4-5 cups of low sodium chicken broth
Spices to taste (remember, I don't measure! You can always add but you can't take away!)
Ground Thyme
Dried Sage
Garlic Powder
Crushed Red Pepper (sprinkle or two)

Serves 6-8
Brown turkey with all the spices. Once browned add carrots, celery and onion. Saute over med to med high heat for 3-5 minutes. Then add the beans and heat through, let all the flavors blend and get all over each other. Taste and spice it up a bit more if you need to. DON'T add salt because the broth has salt in it and that will be plenty enough flavor. Plus, we want the spices in there to enhance the soup, not a bunch of sodium.
OK, now add the broth. You may need more or less to make it how "soupy" you want it to be or not to be. Bring that to a nice simmer then add the noodles. Cook through 'til noodles are done and serve!

Super Easy! Super Quick! Super Economical! Super Hearty! Super Good!
The whole family really enjoyed it which is always a plus! 
Bonus! Now I have lunch for tomorrow!
