  6. In a saute pan heat two tablespoons butter over medium heat. Slowly add flour while whisking. Cook for about one minute whisking the entire time. Slowly whisk in yogurt and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  7. Spread a layer of potatoes along the bottom of the greased dish, overlapping as you go. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and a quarter of the chives, rosemary and of the cheese. Distribute a quarter of the greens mixture over the cheese, then pour sauce over.
  8. Repeat with each layer and sprinkle with the last 1/4 of cheese on top.
