Yes, you read that right.
This week’s recipe swap over at Life as Mom is all about pasta. Well, when I think pasta I think Cavatini. What other pasta is there?!? 😉 Since I’ve already shared my Cavatini multiple times I thought I better come up with something different today.
This slightly sweet pasta salad is memorable not only for its odd name! It’s a favorite at family get togethers. My guess is that the Frog Eye name comes from the teeny-tiny Acini Di Pepe pasta shape.
- 1 c. sugar
- 2 Tbsp. flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 3/4 c. pineapple juice
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 pkg. Acini de Pepe pasta (16 oz.) cooked, drained
- 3 (11 oz.) cans mandarin oranges, drained
- 2 (2 oz.) cans pineapple chunks, drained
- 1 (9 oz.) whipped topping
- 1 c. marshmallows
Combine sugar, flour and salt. Stir in pineapple juice and eggs. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.
Add lemon juice. Cool to room temperature. Combine egg mixture and pasta; mix well and refrigerate overnight in an airtight container. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Refrigerate in an airtight container until thoroughly chilled.
** This makes a bunch. Great for a potluck!
So, is Frog Eye Salad a regional thing? How many of you have eaten it?
