Spinach-Mushroom-Sausage Pierogi Bake

Spinach-Mushroom-Sausage Pierogi Bake

1 16 - ounce package frozen potato pierogi - my preference is homemade - but its your choice
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cooked chicken or pork sausages, sliced (12 ounces total)
1 8 - ounce package sliced mushrooms
1 clove garlic, minced
1 10 - ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
3 ounces cream cheese, cut up
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese



Place the frozen pierogi in a 2-quart rectangular baking dish; set aside. In a large saucepan cook the onion in hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until just tender. Stir in the sliced sausage, mushrooms and garlic. Cook and stir 3 minutes more. Add the spinach, cream cheese, chicken broth, salt and pepper. Cook and stir over medium heat to melt cream cheese. Pour the sausage mixture over the pierogi in the baking dish. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
Bake, uncovered, in a 400 degrees oven about 30 minutes or until lightly browned and heated through.
