I have a recipe for creamy tomato soup that starts the same way ... I add about a tablespoon of garlic, a pint or so of water, no pasta, simmer the pot for 40 minutes, take it off the heat for ten, and then put it in the blender and puree it. (I saute the onion in the butter until just translucent and then dump in the rest.)
