Perogy-Stuffed Shells

Perogy-Stuffed Shells

Garlic herb mashed potatoes and cheddar cheese stuffed inside a large pasta shell, and topped with creamy Béchamel sauce, more cheddar cheese and bacon before baking. An indulgent, make-ahead side dish that’s perfect for leftover mashed potatoes.

Don’t worry – there is not a full perogy stuffed inside each of those shells

That would be over-indulgent

I think we’ll nickname these Lazy Perogies. How does that sound?

Before we get any further, let me just insist that I’m going to spell perogy P-E-R-O-G-Y, and you can spell it pierogi, perogi, pierogy, pierógi, pyrohy, pirogi, pyrogie, or pyrogy if you so desire. (Thank you Wikipedia for that list
