You can omit the cheese and make it dairy free.
To avoid soggy noodles and a watery casserole, try not to overbake.
A note on herbs – I find fresh herbs have a more pronounced flavour, so I try to use them in recipes whenever I can. But they aren’t always available and don’t keep very long in the fridge, so I often use dried herbs. Lately, I’ve been using freeze dried herbs. They are a balance between the freshness of fresh herbs and the shelf life of dried herbs!
