Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, sauté mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Add the flour, bouillon, garlic salt, pepper and thyme; stir until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add broccoli; cook for 3-5 minutes. Stir in cottage cheese and mushrooms. Drain noodles. In a greased 13x9x2 inch baking dish, layer three noodles, a third of the sauce and a third of the Swiss cheese. Repeat layers twice. Bake uncovered, at 350°F for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly and broccoli is tender. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
