Peel and crush the garlic, add to the pot. Mix thoroughly.
Put the lid on the pan and let it simmer on low heat for half an hour.

Add a little milk and flour to a shaker. Shake thoroughly.
Add the remaining milk in a pot and bring to the boil. Add the milk and flour mixture to the sauce and simmer for 5 minutes stirring continuously. Add butter, salt, pepper and, if desired, nutmeg.
Add a layer of the sauce to the bottom of a baking dish. Add lasagne sheets, then a layer of sauce and grated cheese. Repeat two or three times.
