this is a winner. Hubby usually won't eat a pierogie but he really enjoyed this dish, so it's going in my 'keep' file because I LOVE pierogies! I chopped my own cabbage & carrot in lieu of the coleslaw mix, and then subbed Polish sausage for the Kielbasa. I had a tough time cooking my pierogies - they started sticking in the skillet & tearing, so next time I think I'll use more oil or just boil or microwave them first.

Had a bag of coleslaw mix to use up, so I decided to try this for supper this evening. So glad that I did! I must admit I did not have pierogies on hand, so I just subbed a few potatoes that I microwaved before adding to the pan. DH just raved about it. What a delicious, no fuss, one pan meal! May just take this to my son's house next week for the Super Bowl game. Go Steelers!
