Veg Pierogi Casserole#BakingBloggers

This Pierogi Casserole is rich, full of flavor and  makes a hearty meal. It's a wonderful change from the normal meal that we have at home. I served this with sour cream and some salad, which was so enjoyable and filling.  
This portion looks so little and one will think, how can this fill two  as meal, but it's so rich, heavy,  with the  sour cream and salad it's sorted. 
Serves 2
3 Medium Potatoes - boiled and  peeled 
½ Cup Warm Milk
2 Tablespoons + 1 Tablespoon Heaped Butter
1 Larges Onions - finely  chopped
2 Cloves Garlic -  minced
3 Sheets Large Instant Lasagna 
1 Cups Shredded Cheddar cheese - or as required
Salt, Black Pepper powder & Red Chilly Flakes  to taste
1 Cup Sour Cream

In a bowl add the milk , 2 tablespoons heaped butter and microwave for a 30 seconds on high powder or till the butter melts. Keep aside to cool. 
Boil the potatoes in a large pot with water  and a pinch of salt and cook until the potatoes are tender. Remove from heat, drain and cool. When cooled peel and mash them. Combine the milk ,butter with mashed potatoes, mix well, set aside.
Melt the remaining one tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Saute the onion and garlic in the butter for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the onions start to caramelize, season with salt and pepper. Switch of the flame and let is cool a little. Grease an oval 5 inch Pyrex dish with butter well.
Place a thick layer of the mashed potatoes into the bottom of a baking dish.
Top this with 1/2 of the onion and sprinkle of cheese, a dash of salt, red chilly flakes and black pepper.  
Arrange a layer of instant lasagna noodles, pack the dish by arranging pieces of the lasagna sheets. Repeat this with half of the remaining mashed potatoes, another layer of onion then the cheese and a layer lasagna.
Then again the remaining mashed potatoes
then a good layer of cheese a sprinkle of red chilly flakes and black pepper.
Cover the baking dish with aluminium foil and bake,175°C for 35 minutes, remove the aluminium foil and again bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
As you can see when I removed the foil some of the cheese got stuck to the foil so I patched with cheddar cheese slices and baked it again.
Serve with sour cream and  fresh salad. We had this as our meal and it was super delicious.
