Chicken Tortellini Soup

Delish! I served this tonight for dinner and it got rave reviews. I will make anything with broccoli because it is the one vegetable that my kids love. And they love pasta too, so this was a hit, and it is such a pretty dish! Enjoy.

The Goods
10 oz broccoli
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 cup chopped carrots
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chopped white onion
3 cans chicken broth(14 1/2 ounce), ~6 cups
1/2 cup water
1/2 t. oregano
1/2 t. basil
9 oz package cheese tortellini (Once again, I used the Bertoli)
grated Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top
Salt and Pepper to taste.

In a large pot combine chicken broth, cream of mushroom soup, chicken, onions, carrots, water, garlic, basil, oregano, and salt and pepper. Bring to rolling boil and add tortellini. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring often. Add broccoli and simmer and additional 5-10 minutes. The broccoli should be tender.

Sprinkle generously with parmesean. (It makes the soup just perfect!)
