A great recipe from the "Barnwell Cookbook." I make this often, and it can be made ahead, and then just put in the fridge until you are ready to cook it. I often make it the night before, and let it sit in the fridge. A real keeper, and Canadian Favourite!

We all really enjoyed this even the fussy kids. I will say that you can not use the cheater noodles that you don't need to cook, and I think next time we will add bacon bits. Thanks this was yummy.

I only used 9 lasagna noodles, used lowfat cheese, and only poured 1/2 cup of light butter on for the last step. My dh and kids (who ADORE Pierogies) didn't really like the cottage cheese, so I might try it again with ricotta. It was really good.

I added some garlic and dill to the potatoes while they were boiling to give some more flavour, other than that I followed all the rules. Love It - will definatley make this again and again. Freezes good too!!!
