6 no-boil lasagna noodles
2 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 ounces extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 pound lean ground round
1 (10 oz.) package frozen broccoli, thawed and drained
3 tablespoons fine bread crumbs
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped parsley


Place noodles in a bowl of very hot water and let stand. Place 1/2 cup milk in a bowl, whisk in cornstarch and set aside. Microwave remaining milk at full power for 2 minutes.

Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes. Add flour and whisk to make a paste. Gradually whisk in hot milk. Whisk cornstarch and milk into hot sauce. Bring to a boil, whisking; continue to whisk for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in Cheddar, salt and pepper. Remove 1 cup cheese sauce and set aside. Let remaining sauce cool in pot.

Cook ground round over medium heat until browned. Transfer beef with a slotted spoon to cheese sauce in pot; stir in broccoli.

In a small bowl, mix bread crumbs, olive oil and parsley. Preheat oven to 400°F.

Butter a 9-inch square baking dish. Lay 1 noodle on a work surface; top with 1/2 cup beef mixture and roll up; transfer to dish. Repeat with remaining noodles. Spoon Cheddar sauce on rolls and sprinkle breadcrumb mixture on top. Bake until bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes.
