With homemade pasta sheets, baked until heated through and cheese is melted...

Use waxy potatoes, they slice thin and for the best flavour use only fully cooked potatoes. Bake them in the oven or cook them in their jackets. Precooking the potatoes will be a huge time saver, because the casserole requires only heating through and once the cheese melts it is ready to eat. This has all the flavors of lazy day perogy without the butter. Correction... without a lot of butter! I always liked lazy day perogy's flavour, but couldn't wrap my head around all that butter... Whoever dreamed it up didn't have the constitution of an aging lady ha! Seasoned with salt only, this is true comfort food. Good when the north wind blows out there and you are stuck inside with a head cold. 

Still green but chilly. Looking out the backyard. Oh and that's my enormous walnut tree.
