Help with "SELECT @@Identity"

I use "SELECT @@Identity" to return back the Identity column (primary key) after an insert.   I'm hitting a issue - a table on which I'm doing the INSERT has a trigger that itself causes an INSERT into another table.  So, SELECT @@Identity, which "returns the last-inserted identity value" is returning the identity value for the record inserted by trigger, which is not what I want.  

Is there a way around this?
