Pierogies & Veggies with a Light Cheesy Italian sauce

Submitted by: KOSHKALADY

Introduction

This is something quick I whipped together for lunch that appealed to me...it is vegetarian & has a decent nutritional balance. It is also quite flavorful & filling. It is made to serve 2 or 1/2 for lunch/dinner with the other 1/2 for you to take to work for lunch the next day.

Ingredients

    4 Pierogies - Mrs. T's Cheese & Potato
    1/3 cup Morningstar Veggie Crumbles
    .5 oz Mozzerella part-skim
    2 tsp. Parmesean Kraft
    1 Tbls. Olive Oil
    1 Tbls. Zesty Italian Dressing Kraft
    1 Tbls. Milk 1%
    1 Carrot medium chopped in small pieces (so it cooks evenly with the rest)
    1 tsp garlic minced
    1/2 cup Spinach fresh
    4 Mushrooms medium sliced
    Black Pepper & Italian Seasoning to taste

Directions

This makes 2 servings (2 pierogies & 1/2 the veggies).

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. On a piece of foil (make sure it is big enough to wrap everything into a pouch) put the olive oil in center & coat Pierogies. Add chopped & prepped veggies (could use onions if you want I had run out just make sure to adjust the nutritional value). Add the Italian dressing & milk drizzled over top, sprinkle on parmesean & mozzerella, season with black pepper & italian seasoning (could add some red pepper flakes if you want a little spiciness). Wrap foil into a sealed pouch & place on a baking sheet in the oven for about 30 - 35 minutes.

Could be served alone for lunch or for dinner have a nice fresh spinach salad or cup of a light veggie soup...maybe minestrone. Could finish with a fresh fruit salad...I like honeydew, seedless grapes, mandarin orange slices, sliced crisp apple, pineapple chunks, papaya, mango in whatever combination I have available at the time.
