What's for dinner?

That dreaded question...just makes you cringe when you hear it.  Well, at least I do.   We have a few favorites that I try to always have the ingredients on hand for and this is one of them.  I call it kielbasa and cabbage, but my husband calls it "Polish Stir Fry". 

1 lb kielbasa (or sausage of your choice) cut into 1/2" rounds
1 box Pierogies (I prefer the mini ones)
1 pepper (your choice of color) cut into strips
1 small onion coarsly chopped
1/2 head of cabbage chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
olive oil

*  Brown sausage in a large frying pan.  Remove & set aside. 
*  Add 1-2 T of olive oil to pan and set heat on high; once heated add frozen pierogies.  Saute until golden on outside.  Reduce heat to medium, cover and heat through (approximately 5-7 minutes).
*  Once pierogies are heated through add minced garlic and return sausage to pan.  Add onions and peppers, cover and let cook for approximately 5-7 minutes until vegetables are not quite done. 
*  Stir in cabbage; cover and let cabbage wilt. 
*  Of don't have pierogies, serve over prepared egg noodles.
*  Any sausage will do...even brats!  When using brats or similar types of sausage I precook the links to firm, then slice into coins and finish cooking.
*  Add other vegetables and even fruits....shredded carrots, finely chopped apples, etc...
