Pierogi and Kielbasa Bake

I love this dish! It is relatively simple and I love the flavors. It is an easy way to get out of the beef/chicken rut.

16 oz. package frozen potato and cheese pierogies
Cooking Spray
16 oz. turkey kielbasa, cut into small pieces
2 garlic cloves, minced
Assorted veggies (1 red pepper, diced 1 cup frozen peas)
4 oz. low-fat cream cheese
1/2 cup dry white wine or low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 roma tomato, diced
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
cayenne pepper (to taste)


  1. Preheat oven to 400.

  2. Arrange the frozen pierogies in a 9x13 glass baking dish coated with cooking spray.

  3. In a saute pan over medium-high heat, add kielbasa and cook 2-3 minutes or until sausage turns slightly brown. Add garlic and fresh veggies and saute a few minutes. Add cream cheese, pepper and cayenne; cook for 1 minute or until cream cheese begins to melt, stirring frequently. Gradually add wine/chicken broth to pan, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Stir in tomatoes.

  4. Remove pan from heat and spoon mixture over the pierogies. If you have any frozen veggies, put those on top of the mixture, then top with 1/2 cup of shredded cheese.

  5. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until bubbly and heated through.
