Like many reviewers have said before me, as-is this quite bland. Definitely don't use the instant mashed potatoes unless you already have them on hand (why would you?!). I made my own mash; since I was low on potatoes I used a medium-sized bag of frozen vegetables to make up the difference. I used whipping (heavy) cream, margarine, salt, pepper and dried chives in my mashed potatoes. I would also use garlic powder next time. I added the cheese into the mixture; we used a marble cheddar.I chose to use whole wheat lasagna noodles (a full box is too much; only use about half depending on the size of your pan). I sprayed my baking dish with PAM instead of greasing with butter. We topped the casserole with fried onions and used a full pack of bacon (okay, maybe that's a bit too much, but it gave lots of flavour). The end result was a little greasy (our fault, I'm sure) and tasted very similar to traditional pierogies. This is great when feeding a larger number of people without all the fuss of the individual dumplings. We would make this again.
