"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
2 c. coarsely crushed pretzels
3/4 c. margarine, melted
1 tbsp. white sugar
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 c. white sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a medium bowl mix together crushed pretzels, melted margarine and 1 tbsp. sugar. (I did it in the food processor and it works well). Press mixture firmly into bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely.
In a medium mixing bowl, beat together softened cream cheese and 1 c. sugar until smooth and fluffy. Fold in whipped topping and spread mixture evenly onto cooled crust covering all of the pretzels.
Place gelatin in a medium heat-proof bowl and pour in boiling water. Stir gently until gelatin is completely dissolved. Add frozen strawberries and continue to stir until mixture begins to thicken. Chill until semi-firm but still pourable. Pour gelatin mixture over cream cheese layer. Chill at least 2 hours before serving.
