This recipe was originally shared with me by a dear friend. So tasty as well as being an easy alternative to the traditional handmade Pierogies. While this is not difficult, it is a multi-step recipe. (1) cook pasta shells (2) potato preparation and cooking (3) potato mashing (4) onion slicing and cooking (5) stuffing pasta shells (6) layering onions and shells (7) baking. Cooking and preparation times are approximate.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cooks potatoes until soft, drain. Add cheese, salt & pepper and mash until smooth.
  2. Melt margarine or butter in large skillet. Add onions and cook 10 to 15 minutes until tender but NOT browned. Spread half the onions over the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish. (May take 2 pans)
  3. Stuff each shell with heaping tablespoon of the potato mixture, close edges.
  4. Arrange in single layer over onions, spread remaining onions on top (you can use two pans or freeze the pierogies for later use).
  5. Bake at 350 degrees uncovered 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through.

My family enjoyed these. They are certainly easier to make than the traditional pierogi

I had these at a pot-luck dinner, recently, and they were the hit of the party. I will definitely be making them soon!

These were pretty good. I lined the inside of the shell with deli ham before stuffing. Thanks for posting!
