Children will especially love the name of this salad and you will love the taste. 2/3 C granulated sugar
2 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 C pineapple juice (juice from canned pineapple + water)
2 eggs beaten
3 qt water
2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 16-oz package Acini de Pepe*
3 11-oz cans mandarin oranges, drained
2 20-oz cans pineapple chunks, drained (reserve juice)
1 20-oz can crushed pineapple, drained (reserve juice)
1 16-oz container Cool Whip (approx.), thawed
1 C miniature marshmallows (optional)
1 C grated coconut (optional)
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, flour, and salt. Gradually stir in pineapple juice and egg. Cook over moderate heat, stirring until thickened. Cool to room temperature. Set aside.
In a large kettle over medium-high heat, bring water, salt and oil to a boil. Add Acini de Pepe. Cook at rolling boil until pasta is tender. Drain and rinse. Cool to room temperature.
In a large bowl, combine dressing and pasta. Mix lightly but thoroughly. Refrigerate overnight in an airtight container.
Remove pasta mixture from refrigerator. Add thoroughly-drained canned fruit and remaining ingredients to pasta mixture. Mix lightly but thoroughly. Refrigerate in an airtight container. Salad may be refrigerated for as long as a week, so it is really good for make-ahead meals.
