Chicken Tortellini Alfredo

Absolutely amazing!! Tastes like something I would order from Olive Garden! Super easy to make and very healthy!

1 pkg. (9 oz.) spinach or cheese tortellini
2 c. fresh broccoli florets
1 c. fresh baby carrots
3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
2 c. sliced fresh mushrooms
1 large onion, cut into wedges
1-1/2 tsp. minced garlic
3/4 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
1 jar (15 oz.) Alfredo sauce (I used the "light" Alfredo sauce)
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dried oregano

*Cook tortellini according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute broccoli and carrots in 2 Tbsp. oil for 5-6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in the mushrooms, onion and garlic; saute vegetables for 3-4 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. Remove vegetables and keep warm.
*In the same skillet, cook chicken in remaining oil over medium heat for 4-6 minutes or until no longer pink. Return vegetables to skillet. Stir in Alfredo sauce and seasonings; heat through. Drain tortellini; add to chicken mixture. Toss to coat.
