It's a two day process, or at least a few hours, but SO much better than the ones that use pudding as an easy sauce. My husband LOVES this, but like my mom says, "a mans favourite salad usually contains mini marshmallows."
Love this salad!! I am not big on the mixture, so I just add sugar and applesauce to the pineapple juice and pour that in.
I made this for my husband's Thanksgiving potluck and I would love to tell you how it tasted, but it was wiped out! DH said it was delicous and everyone loved it! I followed the recipe exactly.
I discovered this recipe when my cousin began making it for family dinners and potlucks. Its now a favorite of all my friends and family. To this recipe I also add maraschino cherries and flaked coconut. And yes the pasta can be hard to find. Sometimes the store I know that carries it tends to be out of stock.
Last week I was at a pot luck and had this wonderful salad. I'm so glad that I overheard the lady in front of me saying the name of the salad or I would have not had the pleasure of making it. I used colored mini marshmallows and put 4 drops of green food color into the whipped topping before I added it to the salad. It make for a very colorful dish. I will make this again and again.
YUM YUM YUM! I could eat this with just the pasta and the "sauce". Acini di Pepe pasta is really hard to find. I always buy several boxes when I find it. I've been looking for this recipe since college. It used to be on the back of the box way back then! thanks!!
I gave this 5 stars. My gram used to make this for our family reunion. Thanks for posting such a yummy recipe! Christine (internetnut)
I had this at a picnic many years ago and loved it but could not find the recipe back then. I am so happy to find it here on recipezaar!
Great desert on a summer night!!! Yummy!!!
