This recipe was my Grandma's. I found this recipe in her recipe box after she had passed away, I was going through her recipes to make sure I had all of her "special" recipes so I could pass them down to my children. When I came across it, I asked my mother what it was because of the name on the recipe I was basically confused..... Acini De Pepe (pasta) pudding? My mother told me how delicious it was and so I was determined to try this as I have never had pasta in a dessert before. So preparing this was on my to do list. I made it, following the instructions, and being impatient because it was an "overnight" recipe, but when I tasted this finished dish, I was so surpirsed. It was SO yummy. My kids loved it! I don't make it often but when I do, it's devoured! Hope you enjoy!
