Help! Casserole Question!

I have a recipe for a Broccoli Casserole. It calls for three simple ingredients: Ritz, Broccoli, and Velveeta. However! I want to add pasta noodles to make it more filling. How do I pre-cook the noodles, so when I add them into the broccoli mix and pop the casserole into the oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees, the noodles don't overcook?

Also, what else could I add to this ridiculously simple recipe to make it more of a fulfilling dinner?

Just partially cook the pasta. Serve with a grilled chicken breast.

This may be a great casserole, but it sounds like the end product would be very dry. I would add some milk, a white sauce, or some other type of liquid. Let us know how it comes out.

I would cook the noodles prior to putting in the oven.
It also sounds like it would be a bit dry to me. I'd add a can of mushroom soup maybe with some milk.
