Directions:
Dissolve jello in hot water. Cool and add pineapple, bananas and marshmallows. Chill in a 13x9 glass pan. Heat pineapple juice in top of a double-broiler. In a small bowl mix flour, sugar and egg; add this to pineapple juice. Cook until thick, then cool completely.
Fold in whipping cream then spread over jello, grating cheese over the top. Chill well; cut into 2 or 3 inch squares and serve to rave reviews.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I know, I know...jello and marshmallows are so 1970s! But I grew up in the '70s and my mom made this salad maybe once year, like at Christmas or Thanksgiving. It is so good that
you'll forget that jello and marshmallows are questionable food items and wonder why you don't have this more often. I think it could also be served as a dessert. (Okay, if you leave out the marshmallows, I'll understand!)
