READY IN: 4hrs
Recipe by annconnolly

I know it sounds strange but, this combination is just right. It's low in calories and can be served as a dessert or lunch. When I plate this I separate the fruits around the pasta on the platter in triangular shapes.

I took this to a pot luck and everyone liked it a lot. The presentation is georgous I used the brightest colored fruits I could find. The more tropical the better. I'll make it again and again.
