Hella-Good Tomato Soup

This started based on the idea of a friend (the infamous Laura), and turned into some seriously delicious soup! A couple days later, we used some leftover soup as a make-shift pizza sauce on pita with some green onions, green peppers, basil, sausage, and mozzarella cheese. The only problem? It was so good that now I'm torn whether I should have the last little bit as a bowl of soup, or if I should make another pizza!

1 onion, chopped
2 Tbsp butter
1 (798 ml) can whole tomatoes
1/4 water (approx - just enough to rinse the tomato can)
1/4 C fresh basil
1/2 tsp roasted garlic
3-5 dashes of hot sauce
4-5 Tblsp Parmesan cheese
1/4 C milk
salt and pepper to taste

Saute onion in butter until soft (If you don't have roasted garlic on hand to add at the later stage, you could always add some raw minced garlic to saute too). Once softened, add tomatoes, water, and basil. Bring to a boil. Add roasted garlic and hot sauce, and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 30-ish minutes. Stir in parmesan cheese. Remove from heat and add milk. Stir to combine, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
