Both salmon and broccoli are such healthy foods and this sounds like a wonderful spin on a lasagna that uses both of them. Also, the use of fat free milk and lower fat cheese can help reduce the fat found in traditionally Italian lasagna. I found this recipe in the Rosemary Conley recipe book 'Eat Yourself Slim' and the recipe says it is suitable for home freezing.

Ya know what this is? It is tuna (salmon) noodle casserole all dolled up in a sequin dress for a night on the town. Yum!! I did take a few convenience shortcuts, like using a can of sliced mushrooms and three 6-oz cans of boneless/skinless salmon. I also used pre-boil noodles because I had some to get rid of. This is really a tasty creation...I had plenty of sauce, and the generous dollop of garlic I added made it that much better. I used cheddar, but I think you could use any cheese in this with success. I might want to add cheese on top next time...yes, there will be a next time. Thanks so much for posting. BTW, I agree this easily serves 6. Made for Bargain Basement.
- 8 ounces broccoli, trimmed
- 4 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
- 1 pint nonfat milk
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons vegetable bouillon granules
- 2 tablespoons cornflour
- 4 ounces brown button mushrooms, sliced
- 2 ounces low-fat cheddar cheese, grated

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 375°F.
- Cook the broccoli in boiling salted water, drain and set aside.
- Place the salmon in a saucepan with the milk and cook gently over a low heat for 5 to 6 minutes.

- Reheat the milk, adding the mustard and stock granules to the saucepan.
- Combine the cornflour with a little cold water and add to the milk, stirring well to prevent any lumps forming.
- Add the mushrooms and cheese and mix well.
