   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  pounds        thinly sliced onions -- about 6 cups
      1/2  teaspoon      dried thyme
                         OR
    1 1/2  teaspoons     fresh thyme
    7      tablespoons   unsalted butter -- divided 2+1+1+3
      1/2  cup           dry white wine
    1      pound         zucchini -- sliced 1/4 thick
      1/4  cup           all-purpose flour
    2 1/2  cups          milk
                         freshly grated nutmeg to taste
                         salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    3      7 squares    (no-boil) lasagne
    1 1/2  cups          freshly grated Parmesan -- about 5oz.
 
 In a large heavy skillet, melt 2T butter.
 Cook onions with dried thyme (if using dry), salt and pepper, covered, over
  moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes, or until tender and
  pale golden. [I think this was no more than 15 minutes.]
 Cook uncovered, stirring, 15 minutes. [5 min enough.]
 Add wine and simmer until most of wine has evaporated.
 Stir in fresh thyme (if using fresh) and transfer to a bowl.
 
 Preheat oven to 375F.
 Butter an 8 square baking dish.
 
 In the cleaned skillet, melt 1T butter.
 Cook half of zucchini slices in one layer over moderate heat until tender,
  about 2 min on each side. Transfer to another bowl.
 Cook remaining zucchini in 1T butter in the same manner.
 
 In small heavy saucepan, melt remaining 3T butter over moderately low heat.
 Add flour and cook roux, whisking, 3 minutes.
 Add milk in a stream, whisking, and bring to a boil, whisking.
 Add nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste and simmer sauce, whisking, until
  thickened, about 2 minutes.
 [I think they're trying to tell you something about whisking.]
 
 Spread a few tablespoons sauce on bottom of prepared dish.
 Layer over this, in order bottom to top:
 - 1 square lasagne
 - 1/2 onions
 - 1/2 zucchini
 - 1/3 sauce
 - 1/3 Parmesan
 
 - 1 square lasagne
 - 1/2 onions
 - 1/2 zucchini
 - 1/3 sauce
 - 1/3 Parmesan
 
 - 1 square lasagne
 - 1/3 sauce
 - 1/3 Parmesan
 
 Bake lasagne in middle of oven 25-30 min, or until golden. Let stand 10
  minutes before serving.
 
 Serves 6-8 as a first course or side dish.
