    Very quick and easy to make, this is kind of like Polish potato dumplings (pierogi) but served as lasagne!

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Cook lasagne according to packet directions. Drain, pat dry and keep moist in a damp towel OR spray each sheet with cooking spray OR lightly apply some oil.
    3. In a separate large frypan over medium heat, combine the onions with the butter and saute for 5 minutes.
    4. Prepare the instant mashed potatoes according to packet directions, but omit the milk. Stir in the cream cheese until well blended.
    5. Place 3 sheets lasagne in the bottom of a lightly greased 20x30cm baking dish. Spread 1/2 the potato mixture over the pasta in the dish. Top this with 3 more sheets, followed by the other 1/2 of the potato mixture. Finish by topping with the remaining 3 sheets then top those with sauteed onions.
    6. Bake at 180 degrees C for 20 minutes, or until bubbly. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before cutting.

    as for being polish myself, i was very pleased with it.i used real potatoes made the way we make them old style, and it came out great. a little hint, try adding a little sharp cheese,american cheese,onion,and cream cheese to potatoes next time.it will give flavor.  -  19 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    It keeps getting better....I suggest saving some potato and cheese filling to cover the top layer of noodle and use lots of onion. A layer of fried cabbage doesn't hurt.  -  28 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I had printed this recipe off in a recent search for a good lasagna. One day, my husband and I realized that we had what seemed to be nothing to eat in the house. Both of us being pooped from a long day at work, we didn't have the energy to take that walk to the grocery. I saw the recipe hanging on the frig and realized we had everything needed. Altho, heavy this recipe was great. Luckily the lonely bag of frozen vegetables in the freezer accompanied it well. My twist: I added ricotta cheese in with the potato layer.  -  17 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
