This recipe for lazy pierogi casserole was originally submitted to Cookingnook.com by my friend Diane S., who resides in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

She says “My DH of Eastern European descent loves this meal!”

I know I would too, as pierogies are one of my favorite meals. This recipe captures the fabulous flavor of that fabulous Eastern European treat without all of the hard work of making the dough and sealing each of those delectable little dumplings.
