Sauté some garlic in a little olive oil, add some optional dry sherry, then the soup. Reduce to desired consistency, depending on the original thickness. Add some fresh or dried basil. Toss with hot pasta and serve, with or without grated cheese.
Notes: The first time I made this, I happened to have some leftover steamed spinach, so I added that to the sauce. No one guessed it was made from leftovers. You can add some fresh spinach for a colorful and flavorful touch.
