Chicken Noodle Soup

This is my mom's recipe, and it is super easy and really yummy.

Mom's Chicken Noodle Soup

3-4 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 carrots, cut into small slices
2 stocks celery, cut into very small diced pieces
1/2 onion, cut into small pieces
Heat Olive oil on med-high heat. Stir in vegetables. Turn heat down to medium and saute vegetables (continue stirring) for about 5 minutes. Then add:

3 cans chicken broth (Low Sodium) (I use Swanson brand-it has
good flavor and no MSG)
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 can water
Bring to boil and add:

1 can 12.5 oz of canned chicken with the liquid or cooked cubed chicken (2-3 breasts). (When I use canned chicken, I usually use two cans because Aaron and I like it extra meaty).
3/4-1 tsp black pepper
Boil for about 3 minutes then add:

Whole wheat noodles (about 3 cups)
Boil about 10 minutes until noodles are tender.

Add: 1/4 tsp Rosemary (rub between fingers to crush)
1/2 tsp Oregano
Stir in and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from stove and serve.

It is definitely a favorite for us. Hope you enjoy it!
