“Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: This is a great comfort food recipe that has everything, mashed potatoes, noodles, cheese, and BACON, plus more. The idea came from eating potatoe and cheese pirogeis when I lived in Pittsburgh. Cook the noodles, saute the vegetables, then layer everthing in a casserole dish, and pop it in the oven. Couldn't be easier.”
