Traditionally, pasticcio is a form of lasagne (or lasagna al forno), literally meaning 'mess' and is a pasta dish made with bolognese sauce. 
The Greeks' well-loved dish called pasticcio/pastitsio is baked pasta with meat and sauce and this is prepared using this long tubular pasta in layers alternating with meat and topped with Bechemal sauce. It is most likely that the Greek name came from the Veneto/Venecian name. The old Republic of Venice ruled the Greek Ionian islands from the mid-14th century to the late 18th century. Interestingly, the Italian word ‘lasagna’ comes from the Greek word ‘laganon’.
