This is a traditional recipe from the town of Lamon in Veneto, the region to the northwest of Venice. Lamon sits in the foothills of the Dolomites, the Italian Alps. This dish is typically prepared with locally grown fagioli di Lamon — beans more easily obtained, like the pinto or cranberry bean, can be used — and tagliatelle egg pasta.
