Dumpling Casserole Recipe Recipe

This recipe has been emailed to me from one of the readers. She's mentioned that it has been their family's hit recipe and I think I know why. Pelmeni (a.k.a. Dumplings) on their own are pretty bomb, but to let it swim in delicious, creamy sauce, triples the bombness.

If don't have Pelmeni on-hand, you can use large pasta shells, just fill them with some seasoned ground meat, it would be as close as you can get in flavor.

Cook dumplings per package instructions. In most cases, you would boil them in salted water until they float to the top; at which point, it's ready.
Dice onions into half rings and mushrooms into one inch chunks. Fry mushrooms until golden, add onions to the mixture and season with salt & pepper.
Add cream to the mixture and cook until whipping cream comes to a boil. Remove from the heat.
Divide ingredients into ramekins, in the following order. Cover the bottom with dumplings, followed by mushroom sauce, dumplings again, followed by mushroom sauce.
Top each ramekin with cheese. Bake them at 350F for 25 minutes or until tops are golden. Serve right away, while cheese is streeeetchy.
