Frog Eye Salad

I went to a baby shower today  and  this salad was SO good.  I had to come home and look up the recipe. Not sure if this is the exact recipe but this one sounded the most simple, and you all know me, simple simple simple! I myself love tapioca and rice pudding so this was right up my alley!
1 c. acini di pepe pasta

1 (11 oz.) can mandarin oranges, drained
1 sm. can crushed pineapple, not drained
2 sm. pkg. French vanilla instant pudding
Cool Whip

Cook 1 cup of pasta in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain. Add oranges, pineapple and juice with pudding. Add pasta and Cool Whip.

Quick Vegetable Roll-Ups

Ingredients:


1 large eggplant


1 zucchini

½ olive oil

8 ounces mozzarella

1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese

6 spring basil

1/3 cup parsley springs

1 cup spinach, stems removed

3 pieces of roasted red pepper, cut into ¼” slices

Salt and pepper to taste





 Set the oven to broil and line a baking dish with parchment paper brushed with oil.

 Cut the eggplant into 1/4” slices lengthwise until you have eight eggplant shaped slices. Repeat with the zucchini. Brush both sides of each slice with olive oil and season with salt.

 Lay the eggplant and zucchini slices on the baking sheet and broil until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and flip the slices using tongs.

 Divide the cheeses among the eggplant slices, placing the mozzarella on the larges part of the eggplant and sprinkling the parmesan over the entire slice. Broil until cheese is bubbly and slices are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool enough to handle.

 Toss the basil, parsley, and spinach with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.

 Layer the zucchini on top of the eggplant and top with divided roasted red pepper slices, placing the slices on top of the widest side of the eggplant (where the mozzarella was placed), top with the divided spinach mixture and roll the eggplant slices, starting at the thickest end.
