Simple duck soup

Came up with this recipe when a local farmer was selling duck at farmers market this paste weekend. So roughly 10 meals off a little less than $40 duck. 
  • 1 carcass from a 4lb duck, minus the breast and leg meat (went to other dishes)
  • 6 stalks of celery
  • 6 med size potatoes...
  • 1/2 bag of tinkyada elbow pasta
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Boil duck and celery at low boil for about 2 hours until carcass falls apart.
  • Take out carcass from broth and let cool.
  • While waiting for the carcass to cool
    • chop up the potatoes roughly and toss in the broth.
    • Taste broth and add flavoring appropriately to your taste.
    • Cook 5 minutes at low boil and add the tinkyada pasta 
    • boil another 15 minutes per directions for the pasta.
  • Strip any remaining meat off carcass, should be a little under a lb worth.
  • Add the duck meat back in last 5 minutes.
  • Made 5 complete servings and a sixth serving that is just broth to be used by another meal in future.
