Delicious twist on cheesecake for the summer! From the Breast of Friends! Also tastes good with a little toasted coconut on top! Cooking time is chilling time. Not sure if the pouch of gelatin size is right as my pouches don't have a measurement on them (I used Knox).

- 1 (1 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
