  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan oven) gas mark 4.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan on a low heat then mix in the flour to make a roux. slowly mix in the milk until it becomes a smooth sauce.
  3. Crumble the Blue Monday into the sauce. Season with black pepper and mustard.
  4. Chop the spinach finely and put in a bowl with the basil, artichokes and ricotta. add 6 tablespoons of the cheese sauce and mix.
  5. With these two mixtures, begin layering in an oven-proof dish, starting with the ricotta layer, then lasagna sheet, then cheese sauce. Repeat, ensuring that the cheese sauce is the final layer on the top.
  6. Bake the lasagna for 40 minutes. As an option, sprinkle over pine nuts then bake for another 10-15 minutes until golden.
