In Italian cooking, a "soffritto" is a finely chopped, lightly sautéed mixture of food used as a flavourful base to a dish. It will usually be sautéed in olive oil.

It's close to, but not the same, as what is called a "sofrito" (with one "f" and one "t") in Spanish.

Prior to sautéing, the uncooked mixture is referred to as a "battuto."
