1 c mushrooms, diced
14.5 oz diced tomatoes or 4-5 roma tomatoes

4 c chicken broth
1-2 c water
1/2 tsp dried oregano*
1/4 tsp dried basil*
1/2 tsp dried parsley*
1-2 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper
*I eyeballed the measurements. Alternatively, use 1 tsp Italian Seasoning.
Saute onions and carrots in olive oil until tender. Add mushrooms and cook until liquid has evaporated.
Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
Cover and simmer on low for 20 minutes or until pasta is tender.
