Ingredients

    1 (1-ounce) Slice Light White bread
    3 3/4 Cups Uncooked extra-broad egg noodles
    2 1/2 Cups (1 1/2-inch) sliced asparagus
    1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 Teaspoon dried thyme
    1/4 Teaspoon salt
    1/8 Teaspoon black pepper
    1 Cup Skim Milk
    1 Cup Fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
    3/4 Cup Finely Chopped onion
    4 Oz. Chopped Oven-Roasted Turkey
    1 Tablespoon Lemon juice
    1/4 Cup Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    2 Tablespoons Reduced Fat Parmesan cheese

Directions

1. Place bread in a food processor, and pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs form to measure 1/2 cup.
2. Cook pasta in boiling water 7 minutes, add asparagus, cook 1 minute, and drain.
3. Lightly spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Place flour, thyme, salt, and pepper in medium bowl; gradually add milk and broth, stirring with a whisk until well-blended.
4. Spray a medium skillet with cooking spray. Add the onion, and saute 4 minutes. Add milk mixture; cook until thick, about 4 minutes, stirring constantly.

6. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden.
7. Serve warm, and Enjoy!
