  • 1 package Mrs. T's Classic Onion Pierogies
  • 1 cup water
  • cup prepared basil pesto
  • cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes halved or quartered

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drizzle a large skillet with oil, arrange pierogies in a single layer (edges can be overlapping a bit). 
  • Pour water over the pierogies. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and cook for 3 minutes, then flip pierogies over and cook another 2-3 minutes until tender and easily pierced through with fork. Drain liquid from skillet. 
  • Spoon pesto on top of the pierogies, then sprinkle with shredded mozzarella. Bake for 10 minutes until cheese is completely melted. Top with tomatoes and fresh basil and serve immediately.
