“Pierogies are very versatile as far as the filing goes and can be served as a main dish or as a side. Don't be afraid to experiment a little. As with all my recipes, I try to sneak in as much nutrition as possible and keep to my low or reduced fat goals without sacrificing taste. Just remember, a little can go a long way!”
