Blue Ribbon Recipe

We love pierogis and this casserole is a modern rendition of a traditional dish. It really tastes like a pierogi. The layers of pasta and potatoes are cheesy and delicious. As an added bonus, 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.
