Frog Eye Salad Tradition

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
At this family holiday season I'm thinking of my mother and mother-in-law who have 
both passed from this life. One of the things that comforts me is to prepare recipes that 
they both loved. The Frog Eye Salad was my mother-in-law's favorite dish to bring to a 
gathering as it made plenty for a large group. When I've brought it to holiday and special 
occasions, people are always so curious to know what it's made of. They never guess that
it's a pasta because it's served as a dessert.

1 (11 oz.) can mandarin oranges, drained
1 sm. can crushed pineapple, not drained

Cook 1 cup of pasta in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain carefully as the Acini di Pepe is a very tiny pasta. Add oranges, pineapple and juice with pudding. Add pasta and Cool Whip.
