Pierogi with Red Cabbage and Kielbasi

by lisa on February 10, 2014 · 9 comments

pierogi close upThis has been one of the coldest and snowy winters that I can remember. We  have been snowed in quite a few times and all I want to do is eat big bowls of macaroni and cheese with warm chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Actually some hot apple pie with whipped cream would be nice too.

What I want and what I get are two different things. If I kept eating mac and cheese and cookies my clothes wouldn’t fit. So I stop and think about perfect comfort food that is not filled with calories out to wazoo. It seems like even when school is cancelled there are still things to do so I don’t have as much time to cook as I thought I would.

This meal is a perfect one dish meal in that it is not too bad for you and it cooks in my usual 30 minute timeframe.  I added healthy red cabbage and used turkey kielbasa to make this one great meal.

I got together with some of my blogger friends so you can have an array of one dish meals to keep you cooking all winter. I know I will be trying some of these for dinners myself. Check them out below!

I will never breath a word of this to him, because he would eat himself into a food coma!! lol! That’s a big bowl of comfort food it I ever saw one Lisa!

Pierogies is something that we have not had in a very long time. I love that you serve it in the same dish as the kielbasa! This looks delicious!

This is such a cozy comfort food and reminds me of something my Polish grandmother used to make. Looks delicious!
