Pierogie Mac and Cheese

Pierogie Mac and Cheese is so simple to make and so decadent. You don't need to add the peas if you want a pure macaroni and cheese (and potato!) experience.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Yield: Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 2 (16-ounce) bottles Alfredo sauce
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar or colby cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 (16-ounce) boxes frozen potato pierogies
  • 2 cups frozen baby peas, if desired

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Pour both bottles of Alfredo sauce into large saucepan. Pour milk into one bottle; cover tightly and shake. Pour contents into second bottle; cover tightly and shake. (This is how you get all of the sauce out of the bottles). Pour into saucepan. Add cheddar cheese and half of the Parmesan cheese and stir.

Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently, until cheese melts and mixture is smooth, about 5-6 minutes. Spoon 1/2 cup sauce in bottom of 13" x 9" glass baking dish.

Arrange 1 box of the frozen pierogies over sauce in dish (there should be 12 pierogies per box). Cover with half of the remaining sauce. Scatter peas (if using) in the dish. Top with remaining box of frozen pierogies and remaining sauce. Be sure to cover all of the pierogies with sauce. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until casserole is bubbling and pierogies are hot.

Simple and good, Guest Mary

This recipe is really easy and so good. I loved the method for making an Alfredo sauce a cheese sauce - by just melting cheese into the sauce! The pierogies were perfect in the creamy and flavorful sauce. This is a winner.
