Broccoli Chicken Lasagna

This is an awesome recipe I got out of a Taste of Homes Casserole Cookbook. I have made it several times and it's great!

1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms (i leave those out)
1 large onion, chopped
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
1-3/4 cups milk
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 package (16 ounces) frozen broccoli cuts, thawed
9 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
1-1/3 cups julienned fully cooked ham, divided
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
Directions: In a large skillet, saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg until blended. Gradually stir in broth and milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in Parmesan cheese and broccoli; heat through. Spread 1/2 cup broccoli mixture in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Layer with three noodles, a third of the remaining broccoli mixture, 1 cup ham and 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese. Top with three noodles, half of the remaining broccoli mixture, all of the chicken and 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese. Top with remaining noodles, broccoli mixture and ham. Cover and bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with remaining Monterey Jack cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.

Yield: 12 servings.
