Tasty Thursday: Chicken Tortellini Soup

I found this recipe here and decided to try it when I had some friends over for dinner. It was a big hit!
Chicken Tortellini Soup

What you will need:

2 tbsp. olive oil
4 large chicken Breasts
1 large onion
2-3 stalks celery chopped
2-3 carrots chopped
1 clove garlic mined
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. sage
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can chicken broth
1 c. beef broth
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 small pkg. tortellini
grated parmesan

1) Cook chicken in oil until done and then remove chicken from oil.
2) Add veggies to oil and cook until they are soft
3) Return chicken and add garlic, broths, tomatoes, sauces, and spices and simmer for 1 hour.
4) Cook tortellini in boiling water, drain and add to the soup. Cook for 3-5 minutes. *I would do this at the very end, right before eating or they will be a little soggy*
5) Add Parmesan cheese. This makes 6-8 servings.
