Add the chicken (or turkey) carcass to a large pot; then fill the pot with water covering the carcass.
Add your vegetables (I use chopped celery, carrots and onions), salt and pepper and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover the pot, reduce heat and allow to simmer for 1 hour; stirring occasionally.
Remove the carcass from the water; as well as any bones that may have separated. (we don't want anyone to choke!)
Cut off any remaining pieces of meat from the carcass and add it to the pot, along with any extra meat you may have saved from the initial carving. Bring the soup up to a boil again, adjust your seasonings and add pasta (or rice) until cooked.
