Lazy Pierogi Bake

A favorite dish in our family is pierogi—tasty pockets of dough filled with cottage cheese and onions. Making pierogi is time-consuming, so my mom created this easy casserole.—Sandy Starks, Amherst, New York

    My family loves it. It takes some time to make but it's worth it. This meal is a regular in our home.
