While the tomatoes are smoking/baking. Grab a large pot and add the butter and onions and cook on medium heat. Once your onions are translucent add the garlic, Italian seasoning, parsley, basil and red pepper flakes. Cook for about a minute or fragrant. Add diced tomatoes, water, and chicken broth. Once tomatoes are cooked, pour the tomatoes and liquid into the pot as well. Simmer for 30 minutes for the soup to infuse. Let soup cool just a little so blending isn't so dangerous (yes, we had an accident with the blender before). Either use an immersion blender, or blender, and blend the soup to your desired consistency. You can serve right away, or simmer. I always say, the longer you simmer a soup, the better it tastes.
