Really he loved it and couldn't believe he had never heard of it. So if you love it, have never had it, think it might be ridiculous, OR are brave.... give it a try!
1 1/2 cups acini de pepe (pasta, Uncooked)
2 cups mini marshmallows
2 - 4 serving size boxes of instant vanilla pudding
8 ounces cool whip
10 ounces maraschino cherries, halved and DRAINED
11 oz. can of mandarin oranges
20 oz. can of crushed pineapple
20 oz. can of chunk pineapple
Boil your pasta as per the package direction. Drain well, and run some cold water of them. In a very LARGE bowl, combine pudding and cool whip until well combined. Add in oranges and both kinds of pineapple. Make sure to DRAIN the cherries and add those as well. Fold in the pasta and marshmallows and refrigerate for 1 hour. This is a hit with our family as I said, and I am sure it will be a hit with yours too!
PS. If you don't prefer to use cool whip, please feel free to sweeten up some fresh heavy cream and substitute.
