Fast Recipes for Work #1: Pierogi Casserole

Everyone knows that freelancers live on caffeine and nicotine, but it’s important to put the right fuel in your body occasionally.  Based on the feedback from a previous article, I’d like to present a few fast recipes that let you create a quasi-healthy meal, with a minimum amount of prep time, cooking time, and most importantly, clean up time.  Try out the recipe, and let us know what you think.

Pierogi Casserole

  • 1 small bag frozen pierogi
  • 1 jar of your favourite spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese(or mozza, or both)


Turn oven on to 350°F

Place frozen pierogi in a casserole dish (um, remember to remove from plastic bag…)

Add pasta sauce (pour over top of pierogi  – recycle jar)

Sprinkle with shredded cheese

Bake in oven for 45 minutes to an hour

Remove from oven, scoop into bowl, serve with side salad and/or garlic bread.

Go back to coding/writing/designing – with a full belly.

    OMG just in time! jaja
    My husband is out of town this week and he always cook something to me while I working. So I’m going to try this recipe this week! By the way, excellent topic. Almost no one writes about how to eat well when we are occupied all day, sitting and with little time.

    Fast recipe #2: open box of peas on a plate, add a tiny piece of butter, microwave for a minute, then eat.

    Total time: 5 minutes, all included 😀

    That Perogi recipe does sound tasty however, I wish I still had an oven.

    Nothing taste like home made pierogies.

      absolutely right Lukas – but they aren’t really a quick meal.

      I like Thea’s recipe #2 option – but it would need more than “a tiny piece of butter” – peas are a butter and salt delivery system! (just like corn!)
