Step 3 Cook on low for 5-6 hours (or high for 3-4 hours) until the turkey is cooked through and tender. Remove the turkey from the slow cooker and set aside. If you are making this with leftover turkey, cook on low for 3-4 hours.

Step 4 Add the egg noodles to the slow cooker and cook for 8-12 minutes on low or until tender. If regular pasta is used, it will take 20-30 minutes to cook on low in the slow cooker.
