In a large saucepan cook onion and garlic in butter or margarine, covered, over low heat about 20 minutes or  until very tender. Stir occasionally. Stir in beef broth and water. Cover and cook over medium heat about 25 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, toast bread slices; arrange on a baking sheet. Top bread with Swiss or Gruyere cheese. Sprinkle  lightly with parmesan cheese. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes or till cheese is light brown and bubbly. Ladle hot soup into serving bowls. Top with bread slices.
