Pierogies With Tomatoes, Caramelized Onions and Dill

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Manami

An eastern European take on on ravioli, this Polish dish is just as comfortable with store bought cheese pierogies and a lively sauce of tomatoes, onions with dill & caraway seeds. This is comfort food alright! Gourmet Magazine, October, 2007.

I thought this was wonderful as a main dish! Found it on the epicurious website initially.
