NOTE: If you want to save a step and a pot to clean, you can add the broccoli to the egg noodles during the last 5 minutes of cooking time for the noodles. Then strain all together.

NOTE: For make-ahead, follow all the steps up to baking, then refrigerate for up to 4 days. Then remove from refrigerator, cover with foil and bake at 350 for 20 minutes, remove foil and bake an additional 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is hot and bubbly.

NOTE: If you would like to freeze this as a make-ahead dish, follow all the steps except baking. Once you’ve got the casserole assembled and topped with cheese, simply cover with plastic wrap, then cover again with aluminum foil and freeze for up to 9 months. To thaw, defrost for 24 hours in the refrigerator, then remember to remove the plastic wrap, recover with foil and bake on 350 for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and continue cooking for about 15 more minutes, until cheese is melted and casserole is hot and bubbly.
