If you’ve never had Pierogi before, than your in for a real treat!
I remember having Pierogi with a spicy red sauce at a restaurant a few years ago. It was so tasty that I set out on a mission to find a way to recreate those flavors again. So, I picked up a few boxes of frozen Pierogi at the grocery store and started experimenting!
The pork chorizo mixed with simple tomato sauce and a touch of garlic, has so much flavor. You can also use ground Italian sausage, if desired.
Some folks don’t mind a runny sauce with Pierogi, but I’m not one of them. I wanted every bite of the potato stuffed pierogi topped with the chunky, spicy sauce. Oh, that’s another thing – I add crushed red pepper flakes to nearly everything! This recipe was no exception. My husband and I love some heat to our pasta sauces, and a few pinches of crushed red pepper brought this flavor to a whole new level. If you like spicy food, I highly recommend it!
