minestra f (plural minestre)
- In the Italian culinary tradition of a multi-course dinner this is usually the first course (not counting antipasto, if any). As a soup, it tends to be lighter than zuppa and with smaller pieces than minestrone.
- In most settings just ”minestra” will be understood to be a soup-like dish, but the term is also used to refer to minestra asciutta, which is a pasta dish.
