Pasticho is a form of lasagna traditionally from Venezuela. Although surrounding Latin American countries including Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Colombia, use this term, it usually refers to a plantain dish regional to those countries.

Venezuelan Pasticho (or Pasticciata) is similar in style to Italian lasagne, with several variations. Bechamel is used along with Mozzarella. Prosciutto is sometimes layered along with the ground beef. Usually lasagne pasta is not used in favour of penne, this is the key difference between the numerous dishes dubbed pasticho and lasagne.
