Make a Meal from a Box of Frozen Pierogies – Peppers, Onions, Spinach & Sausage or Ham

A simple box of frozen pierogies can easily be turned in to a complete and inexpensive meal just by adding some veggies and a little meat. You can easily substitute the sausage in this recipe with diced leftover ham or deli ham.

1 Box Frozen Pierogies (I use Mrs. T’s)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 red pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 cups fresh spinach, torn into pieces
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (or 2) italian sausage link, sliced in 1/4″ slices (or substitute ham)

Heat 1 Tbsp.  olive oil in a large skillet.  Add onion, pepper and sausage to pan.  Cook until all begins to brown.  Add in spinach and garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until spinach is wilted.  Move veggie/meat mixture to a plate.  Add the other Tbsp. olive oil to the pan and heat.  Add in frozen pierogies and 1/2 cup water.  Cover and let cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove lid, add reserved ingredients back to pan and cook until pierogies start to brown.  Serve immediately.
