We love pierogis and this casserole is a modern rendition of the traditional meal. It really tastes like a pierogi. The layers of pasta and potatoes are cheesy and delicious. As if that wasn't decadent enough, buttered onions are mixed into the potatoes and baked on top. Oh my... This is a savory dish that's warm and comforting. Your family will love it.

Tip: After the casserole comes out of the oven, sprinkle with a bit of cracked pepper and fresh parsley for added color. The Test Kitchen
