I had company for dinner on Friday and served up one of my favorite lasagna recipes that I got from Karen of Karen's Kitchen Stories.  I normally serve up lasagna made with my kid's grandma's recipe. It has been my go to for over 40 years now.

This Abruzzese Style Lasagna is delicious as well and this Meatless Lasagna is perfect during Lent or when entertaining vegetarians.  I have made lasagna with pumpkin, in the crockpot, rabbit, seafood, and vegetables.  Every single one of them get gobbled up.  


Pierogi Lasagna

This pierogi lasagna was served up at a family dinner along with some Roasted Kielbasa and Cucumbers in Homemade Ranch Dressing.  It was a wonderful meal.

This pierogi lasagna is a great way to use up any leftover mashed potatoes you may have.  Using leftovers is always a bonus to me.  If your family, like mine, loves lasagna and loves pierogi why not surprise them with this fun, creative dish?

PIerogi Lasagna

Layers of pasta, mashed potatoes, caramelized onions and cheese. Polish Lasagna anyone?
Prep time: 45 MinCook time: 30 MinTotal time: 1 H & 15 M

Ingredients

  • 12 oven ready lasagna noodles
  • 3-4 medium russet potatoes
  • 1 (16 oz) container small curd cottage cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c. shredded Colby Jack cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 large Vidalia onions
  • 2 T. butter
  • 1/2 c. panko bread crumbs

Instructions

  1. Peel and thinly slice the onions. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and let cook, slowly, until they turn a deep golden brown and are caramelized, 30-45 minutes.
  2. Peel the potatoes and cut into half and then cut each half into quarters. Place in a large pot of cold, salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and mash.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the cottage cheese and egg. Fold into the mashed potatoes along with the cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spray an 9x13" baking pan with olive oil and lay 3 sheets of the lasagna noodles across the bottom. Spread 1/3 of the potato mixture over the noodles and scatter 1/4 of the onions over the top. Add another layer of noodles, followed by another third of the potatoes and another fourth of the onions. Repeat this step again and lay your final 3 lasagna noodles on top. Sprinkle with the remaining onions and the bread crumbs.
  5. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bakein a preheated 350* oven for about a half an hour until the pasta is tender and the filling is hot.
