    • In the same pan, melt the butter and add the garlic. Cook until fragrant.
    • Add the flour and stir continuously for about a minute.

    • Add the double cream and mix well.
    • Incorporate the sundried tomatoes, spinach, parmesan, and Italian herbs into the sauce.

  4. Assemble the Lasagna:

    • Repeat the layers two more times, ending with a layer of mozzarella on top.
  5. Bake:
    • Cover the dish with foil and bake for 1 hour.
    • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 30 minutes until the top is golden and crispy.
  6. Serve: Let the lasagna rest for a few minutes before serving to allow it to set.
