The theme this month is Pasta! There is so much good pasta to choose from, but I'm sure not to many of you use Acini De Pepe macaroni. It a very small noodle used in Frog Eyed Salad, which is so good. It makes a great potluck dish or for a large party, since the recipe tends to make a lot. To find more awesome pasta recipes head on over to I Have To Say.

Frog Eye Salad
1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple (drained & save juice)
1 can (11 0z.) mandarin oranges ( drained & save juice)
2 cups fruit juices ( from the above fruit)
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
2 Tb. flour or cornstarch
3 eggs
1 pkg (16 oz.) Acini De Pepe macaroni
1 pkg colored or white marshmallows
1 large container whipped topping

Cook the macaroni according to directions on the box. When done drain and cool. Then take the saved juice and cook the juice, salt, flour & egg. When it's thick set aside to cool. Mix the thickened fruit juices, macaroni & fruit and let stand overnight. The next day add the marshmallows & whipped topping. Refrigerate or freeze. Thaw before serving. Eat and Enjoy!
