Tuna-Noodle Luncheon Mold

This recipe needs no snarky comments. It speaks for itself. Thank goodness there was no photo, the idea of noodles in Jello is just too gross to contemplate.

Tuna-Noodle Luncheon Mold

1 tablespoons salt
2 quarts boiling water
1/2 pound San Giorgio medium egg noodles
1 3 ounce package lemon-flavored gelatin
1 cup hot water
1 cup cold water
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup pineapple juice
1-1/2 cups grated carrots
1 cup drained canned crushed pineapple
2 7 oz. cans drained solid pack tuna
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

Add 1 tablespoon salt to rapidly boiling water. Cook noodles according to package instructions. Drain in colander. Combine gelatin and 1 cup hot water. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add 1 cup cold water and pineapple juice. Chill until slightly thickened. Fold in carrots, pineapple, tuna which has been broken into pieces with a fork, parsley, 1 teaspoon salt and cooked noodles; mix well. Turn into oiled 2 quart mold and chill until firm. Unmold and garnish with carrots and green pepper flowers, if desired. Serves 6-8.

Oh,I think I'll pick-a-roni something else to eat...Why do they always heave in some pineapple, as if that will makes things better?
