In the same skillet as before, combine the squash, broth, 3 Tbs. thyme, and 3 Tbs. sage. Cover and simmer over medium heat until tender, about 6 minutes. Uncover and cook for another 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

In a bowl, mix together the ricotta, 2 C. mozzarella cheese, 1 1/2 C. Parmesan cheese, 1 Tbs. thyme, and 1 Tbs. sage. Season to taste with salt and pepper and then mix in the eggs.

Grease a 13x9 baking dish and spread 1 C. ricotta mixture in the bottom. Arrange 3 noodles on top. Spread 1 3/4 C. ricotta mixture over them. Top with 1 1/3 C. squash mixture. Sprinkle with 1/2 C. mushrooms and 1 C. mozzarella. Repeat with the noodles, 1 3/4 C. ricotta mixture, remaining squash, and remaining mushrooms. Top with 3 more noodles and spread the remaining ricotta mixture on them. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese. Cover with oiled foil.
