No Food Wasted: Leftover Pasta, sausage, and Mac -n-cheese= pierogie casserole 

We had pasta with sauce one evening . I serve pasta and sauces separately , letting each person add what they want to their pasta. I have one kid who can’t eat tomatoes (and other acidic foods) and another who just like butter and cheese. This just works better for us. So, anyway- from that dinner, I had leftover cooked pasta but no leftover sauce.

The following day for lunch, my boys ate boxed mac and cheese (thank you, Backpack Program). There was only about a cup left.

The next day, I combined the pasta & Mac -n-Cheese in a rectangular baking dish. I added a splash of milk & a handful of shredded cheese. I found one lonely sausage in the fridge that I sliced up and added (my vegetarian daughters are at college).

My daughter made a pot of mashed potatoes . We spooned that on top of the pasta mess. Sprinkled with more cheese. Baked until the cheese melted and pasta was heated through. Presto, Pierogie Casserole. 

It was better than it looks here.
