[Italian] plural lasche

Nase or laska. A small freshwater fish similar to bleak and sometimes mistaken for it. It has many bones, which discourage most people from eating them. This fish is highly regarded in the area of Lake Trasimeno in Umbria. This leads to Umbrians being known as "Magnalasche", the eaters of lasca fish, as well as the more common "Magnalische" or fish-bone eaters. This comes from the fact that Umbria is the only land-locked region of Italy. They are normally taken small and fried in numbers.
