I have been making this for years. It is a great way to use up left over mashed potatoes. I just reheat in the microwave to add the cheese. Also if I do not have lasagna noodles I substitute extra wide egg noodles.

This was really easy and very tasty. Pierogies always remind me of the kase noodle made by my grandmother's family which immigrated from the Volga River German colonies in Russia. I loved both the potato and the cheese they would make. This recipe combines those. The ingredients could be more highly seasoned so adjust as you like.

This is a great recipe- it does taste like pierogies! It is a little bland. Next time I would add browned bread crumbs to the top, like my grandmother served over her pierogies! Or my husband suggested bacon bits.

My hubby and kids love this...my hubby suggested maybe some ground turkey in it...I also add a couple of cans of mushrooms to the top...
