Minestrone soup for a snack
Did You Know? - The word "minestrone" is the augmentative of "minestra" (soup), so literally it means: big soup. The word has its root in the Latin word "minus" or minor or less, which was applied to servants, as they were considered subordinates. Hence, the word "minestrone" originates from the Latin word "minestrare" or literally "that which is served,". The verb is from circa 1300, originally "to serve (food or drink)" and shares the same root as the verb and noun "minister".
