Acini Fruit Salad

Acini Fruit Salad


One container of Cool Whip

2 quarts sliced strawberries, half of them mashed

4 bananas

2 Tbsp flour

2 eggs beaten

3/4 c sugar

1 box strawberry jello

1/2 box Acini di pepe pasta, cooked, rinsed and cooled


Cook mashed berries, jello, flour, eggs and sugar until thick. Let cool.

Mix with cooled acini.

Add sliced berries, mix and chill.

When ready to serve, add sliced bananas and cool whip. Mix through and serve.

**note: This is one of those desserts that is delicious but doesn't always look very sophisticated.. we've had to talk people into trying it before to get them over the idea of "pasta in a fruit salad", but most people agree it's yummy.**

This is actually a picture of Orange Acini and we posted the recipe using Strawberries and bananas. We just change it up and use mandarin Oranges and juice and crushed pineapple and juice to make the thickened sauce. And the orange recipe is always requested for parties and showers.
