  1. Mix together sugar, flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pineapple juice and eggs in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until thickened and remove from heat. Add lemon juice and cool.

  3. Combine the pasta, egg mixture, mandarin oranges, pineapple and whipped topping in a large bowl. Keep in refrigerator overnight or until chilled. Before serving top with coconut and mini marshmallows.
Recipe Notes

For a quicker variation, skip the first step and make instant vanilla pudding. You can also substitute the acini di pepe pasta for couscous if you prefer. Maraschino cherries are a yummy extra garnish for extra sweetness.
