    This is a really novel take on was a little bit of work (between making the noodles, the potato mixture and the cottage cheese mixture.) But worth it. Loved the sauteed onions. I see why people may want to amp it up, but was tasty as written. Thanks for posting recipe!

    This is an awesome recipe. We add a layer of sauerkraut. Amps it up a little.

    I added some bacon because I felt like it needed a little something. I served it with sour cream as well. It was definitely tasty, but given how much we enjoy traditional perogies much more, I don't think I'll make it again.

    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.
