    I love this recipe and used to make it alot more when the kids lived at home. Now, it's a once in a while treat. When I make this in the summer, I use 1 1/2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs (or any other crumbs) and 3 tablespoons of melted butter and just press this into my pan & refrigerate until firm. Who wants to turn the oven on on a hot summer day?

    This was a big hit at my St. Patty's day dinner last night! Extremely easy to make and should be made ahead. I didn't chop my pistachio's finely enough for the crust; next time I'll get them really small, otherwise they're tough to fork/cut through and prevent the crust from being smooth. I used light pudding, whipped topping and cream cheese with no problems at all! Loved it and will be making again!

    No family reunion would be complete without this dessert! My DH's family always called it just 'Green Stuff' and it's always been THE favorite dessert in his family. Thanks for posting.

    This recipe is called Pistachio delight in my husband's family and it is sinfully delightful! It's a big portion so you can freeze it. Worth making for sure.
