Preheat oven to 400F. Parboil potatoes 5 minutes in boiling salted water and drain.

Combine spinach, artichoke hearts, ricotta, garlic, salt, pepper, egg yolks and half the cheese in a bowl.

Melt butter in saucepot over medium-high heat and whisk in flour. Cook 1-2 minutes then add milk, season with salt, pepper and nutmeg and thicken sauce to coat a spoon.
