And for fun, here's a yummy little recipe from the book that might be just right for St. Patty's Day!
Gloppy Green Frog-Eye Salad
3/4 cup acini di pepe
2 snack-size vanilla pudding cups, chilled
Green food coloring
1 small can pineapple tidbits, with juice
1 small can mandarin oranges, drained
2 to 3 cups mini marshmallows
1 (8-ounce) container Cool Whip
Cook the acini de pepe pasta according to package directions; drain and let cool completely. Combine the cooled pasta with the pudding, pineapple with juice, and oranges. Gently stir in the marshmallows, half of the Cool Whip, and the green food coloring. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours before serving. Stir in the remaining Cool Whip just before serving. Makes 6 servings.
