Italian cooking has all kinds of soups, "Minestra" being one of the kinds. Minestra soups start with a light broth to which pasta or vegetables are added to give depth and a subtle flavour. Crisp, crunchy vegetables, lightly thickened with pasta is what makes this soup delicious! This soup is an ideal first course, a prelude to a heartier main course
