Lasagne con pesto e salmone
A pasta that breaks one of those Italian rules

Lasagne con pesto e salmone means an oven-baked lasagna layered with with pesto, B├ęchamel sauce (besciamella), and smoked salmon (salmone affumicato). It breaks that tourist-imagined hard and fast rule of no strong cheese with fish, but the smoked salmon can stand up to the Parmigiano-Reggiano in the pesto and almost anything else you can throw atop it.

This is a perfect primo to have with a secondo piatto that consists of a tomato based sauce.

The picture was taken at the Hotel Ristorante Sicomoro near Fivizzano in the Lunigiana historic territory of Tuscany.
