    1/3 cup all-purpose flour (about 1 1/2 ounces)
    3 cups skim milk
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Top with 3 lasagna noodles, 1 cup marinara sauce, and 3/4 cup cheese. Layer 3 more lasagna noodles, remaining spinach mixture, and remaining 3 lasagna noodles. Top with remaining marinara sauce.
