"This is the best cold rhubarb dessert recipe I've found, and it's so easy. I have to give thanks to Nikki for adapting this recipe! Even my son who dislikes rhubarb loves this one. Adapted from the diabetic/diet version (Rhubarb Rumble). I like to make this in an 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass pan, making my own graham cracker crust. The addition of fresh strawberries adds an extra layer of lusciousness. It ends up being a very PRETTY IN PINK dessert. The hard part is waiting for it to chill." — jadaripley

1 (3 ounce) package
strawberry-flavored Jell-O® mix
1 1/2 cups
cold skim milk
1 (3.4 ounce) package
instant vanilla pudding mix
sliced fresh strawberries
prepared graham cracker crust
Easy version is to use prepared Graham Cracker pie crust (I make my own time permitting). Assemble the pie by making the pudding - 1 box instant vanilla pudding mix 3.4 oz size using 1 ½ C. milk **OR** save time by using 4 pre-made vanilla pudding cups, once you’ve made gelatin rhubarb mix in microwave let it cool than mix vanilla pudding and gelatin/rhubarb mix together and pour in pie crust, refrigerate until firm. (Note - cook Rhubarb and gelatin in microwave until Rhubarb is thread like, following recipe instructions to stir every 2 min, for 6-8 min)
It sounded like a good idea, but too many things went wrong for me... like, I never noticed that it called for a "1 oz." pkg. of vanilla pudding mix. OK. I'm not sure if that is supposed to be 3.5 oz or 6 oz. pkg. The whole microwave process didn't work for me. I ended up having to cook the rhubarb on the stove. It might taste OK, but for something that is supposed to be simple, I'd rather have it work right the first time without dirtying so many dishes trying to get it to just work.
YUMMY!! Cooked my rhubarb and gelatin on the stove. If you use 2 cups of sliced strawberries the rhubarb filling will not fit in the store bought graham cracker crust. Will make my own crust next time so can use the 2 cups of sliced strawberries.
