Acini de Pepe Salad

This is a recipe that I received from my mother. I often make it for holidays and when guests come for meals. Please note: This recipe needs to be started a day in advance.

1 (12 oz.) box Acini de Pepe
noodles
2 c. juice from cans of pineapple
tidbits & mandarin oranges
2 T. flour
½ tsp. salt
3 egg yolks
½ c. sugar

2 (8 oz.) tubs whipped topping
2 (11 oz.) cans mandarin
oranges
2 (20 oz.) cans pineapple tidbits
2-3 c. fruit of your choice
(grapes, strawberries,
peaches, kiwis, etc.)

Cook noodles in 4 quarts of water for 10-11 minutes; rinse and drain. Put noodles aside. Open the cans of pineapple and mandarin oranges. Drain the juice into a saucepan. Refrigerate the fruit. Add the flour, salt, egg yolks, and sugar to the saucepan. Stir and cook until sauce has thickened. Add the sauce to the noodles; stir and refrigerate overnight. This is necessary to flavor the noodles. The next day, add the whipped topping to the sweetened noodles. Make sure all the fruit is drained and dry; mix in most of the fruit and use the rest to garnish.
