Mr. Food: Pierogi Lasagna

Mr. Food

Serves: 12

Cooking Time: 45 min

Ingredients
  • 12 lasagna noodles
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 5 medium-sized onions, finely chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 6 cups warm seasoned mashed potatoes, store-bought or homemade
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions; drain and set aside. 

  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Saute onions 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned; reserve 1/2 cup sauteed onions for topping. Add remaining onions, pepper, and cheese to mashed potatoes; mix well.

  4. Place 3 noodles on bottom of prepared baking dish. Spread 1/3 of potato mixture over noodles. Repeat layers until a total of 4 layers of noodles and 3 layers of potato mixture have been placed (with a layer of noodles on top). Top with remaining sauteed onions.

  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until heated through.

Note:

You might want to add a few cooked sliced mushrooms to the potatoes, or maybe a cup of well-drained sauerkraut. And season your mashed potatoes however you like 'em...salt, pepper, and butter work fine.
