Pierogie Casserole

Serving Size  : 6    

    8      ounces        lasagna noodles
    2      large             onions -- diced
    8      ounces        sharp Cheddar cheese (2 cups) -- grated
    4      cups             mashed potatoes ( fresh or leftover)
    4      tablespoons   butter
                         Salt and pepper to taste

Cook noodles according to package and set aside. Brown the
butter in a medium skillet, being careful not to burn. Add the
onions and sauté until softened and lightly browned. Combine the
cheese and mashed potatoes. Butter or spray a 13x9x2-inch
baking dish. Line the bottom with a layer of noodles. Add a
layer of potato and cheese mixture then spread with a portion of
the onions. Continue to layer the ingredients ending with a
layer of noodles topped with onions. Bake at 350° F for 15 to 20
minutes, or until bubbly and lightly browned. Tent with foil if
the top browns too quickly.

Serves 6

Notes: Browning the butter adds a lot of flavor to the
casserole. If you prefer, it could just be melted. If making
freshly mashed potatoes, use about 8 large potatoes. If you
don't have enough leftover potatoes, add some fresh or make some
from instant potatoes. The recipe can easily be halved.
