I call this Lazy Potato Pierogi Recipe, you don’t have to make & roll out the dough to form tiny potato pierogi. Cooked macaroni works as a dough and mashed potato as a filling.
When you add cheese it pulls all of the flavors together and creates an amazing yummy taste.
Feel free to add cooked bacon, ham, or steamed broccoli on the side.
