Pierogi Lasagna

This little creation was thought up/seen somewhere by my dear husband and since it's way less time consuming than actual pierogis (which he's been excited to try making since he got me a pasta attachment for my mixer), I decided to humor him and give it a shot.   I mean, carb overload aside, what can go wrong by mixing noodles, mashed potatoes, and sautéed onions?  I say win/win.  So, the result of my Saturday experiment is this yummy comfort food classic, pierogi lasagna. It would also be a great use for leftover mashed potatoes (though probably on a smaller scale). Here's how Mama makes it:
