Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Ahhh Rossy....he really wanted to make chicken noodle soup from scratch - so  I finally found a recipe that didn't take all day....and this was really, really good!  Even Brody liked his 1st taste of chicken noodle soup :)

6 cups chicken broth (1 1/2 boxes or 3 cans) - this recipe works great: Homemade Chicken Broth
1 lb cooked chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces (rotisserie chicken is perfect)
1 cup sliced carrots
2 ribs celery, chopped
1 onion, minced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 bay leaf
1 handful of chopped fresh parsley (or 1 Tbsp. dried parsley)
1/2 teaspoon basil
Creamette noodles

In a large pot, heat some olive oil over medium heat and add onions and garlic. Saute for a few minutes and then add chicken broth, chicken, bay leaf, and basil. Bring to a boil. Add carrots and celery and reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook until carrots and celery are tender. When carrots and celery are almost done, add chopped parsley. Increase heat to boiling and add noodles - Cook until noodles are tender.
