Pierogies with Sausage Sauce

I love pierogies! Seriously, who wouldn’t love pasta filled with mashed potatoes and cheese? Yes, I know that’s not all they can be filled with, but that’s always how I have them. If you’ve never tried them, you should! I introduced my husband to them about a year ago and they’ve become a staple meal in our household.

I love having the pierogies with a sauce so I decided to add some meat to a creamy tomato sauce and it was a hit!

I recently made it for my grandparents and they fell in love. I left the recipe with her so she will be able to make it for my grandfather again and again.

So there are a few things I’d like to comment on the differences in doing the recipe in the Bahamas and in Canada. In the Bahamas, I can get Jimmy Dean’s sausage and that’s all I use. In Canada, at least in Collingwood, I couldn’t find Jimmy Dean and went with just a plain pork sausage, next time I won’t. I would use the Hillshire Farm sausages and just cut the casings off. Also, the box of pierogies that I use has roughly 12 in the box, but in Canada, the box I bought had 24, so I should have made a double batch of sauce, but I didn’t.
