Ingredients:

9 uncooked lasagna noodles
1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
¼ cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter
⅓ cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon chicken or vegetable bouillon granules
¾ teaspoon garlic salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon dried thyme
2½ cups fat-free milk
6 cups broccoli florets
1½ cups 1% small-curd cottage cheese
10 ounces reduced-fat Swiss cheese, shredded, divided

Directions:

1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain when done.

2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, sauté mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. 

3. Add the flour, bouillon, garlic salt, pepper, and thyme; stir until blended.

4. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.

5. Add broccoli; cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

6. Stir in cottage cheese and three-fourths of the Swiss cheese.

7. In a 13x9x2-inch baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray, layer three noodles and a third of the sauce. Repeat layers twice. Cover and bake at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until bubbly and broccoli is tender. Sprinkle with remaining Swiss cheese. Bake, uncovered, 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
