Cheater, Cheater Pumpkin Eater

OK, OK! I admit it I am a cheater.
But I couldn't help myself, Donna's Pierogi Lasagna looked SOOOO good, and I had to have some. Even if it meant cheating, I only cheated a little- by using instant potatoes...... and not cooking onions in the butter......... OK!!! I cheated on the whole thing!
Am I sorry? NO, it was DELICIOUS! It probably would have been even better had I made the potatoes from scratch and sauteed the onions in butter, but I only had instant potatoes and no onions and I was desperate I tell you!
So here is a link to the real version, (be warned her blog is a little risque, but full of yummy recipes) Thank You Thank You Thank You Donna for sharing this recipe, it is amazing :)
As for my total cheater short-cut version, here it is-

Pierogi Lasagna

1 box- (2pkg) Betty Crocker 4 cheese instant potatoes- prepared as instructed
1c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 box lasagna noodles
1c. butter- real butter- melted

Cook the noodles and drain, heat oven to 350.
Stir the cheese into the prepared mashed potatoes.
Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam, lay 3 noodles across the bottom of the pan,
spread on a layer of the potatoes, repeat 2 or 3 more times.
Finish with 3 noodles, carefully pour the melted butter over top of it all.
Cover with tin foil and bake at 375 for 20 minutes.
ENJOY, and you will because it's AWESOME :)

I would totally eat both versions and not complain one bit!

There's something so wrong and yet so good about pasta, potatoes, cheese and butter.
