In an attempt to eat healthier i am going to -try- to make dinner more at home. Heres hoping this works. We went and got about $50 worth of food today, but a good chunk of it was meats. Enough to make LOTS of beef stew. ;D I am not complaining and neither is joey ^_^ we love it.

I also have ideas for a pierogi lasagna. and of course theres always my pasta bake :) I just want to eat better.

pierogi lasagna

What's the surprise ingredient between our layers of lasagna noodles? Seasoned mashed potatoes! Our hearty Pierogi Lasagna, topped with zesty Cheddar cheese, is a must-have for your recipe collection.
Serves: 12
Cooking Time: 45 min

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


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

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

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.

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.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until heated through
Pasta bake (much less instruction intense xD)

-a package of your choice noodles. I am partial to rotini or elbows
-a pound of beef.
-your choice pasta sauce
-shredded mozzarella cheese and lots of it xD
-1 package of frozen corn

1) Boil noodles to desired tenderness and brown the meat.
2) whichever is the bigger pot you used, re-use it to combine noodles, meat, sauce, corn and 1/2 of the cheese.
3) move glop into a casserole dish. Cover the rest of the mess with more cheese.
4) bake at about 350* until cheese is your desired crispiness. Mmmmmm crispy mozzarella.

The pasta bake is just something i developed over the years and obviously can be modified easily. I dont put exact amounts of what to add cause its all up to you and your family :) Not a corn fan? Substitute for another veggie :D Lots of sauce? ADD MORE! less cheese? take some out xD
