Directions:
Prepare pudding according to package directions, using only 3 cups milk. Fold in half the whipped topping. Split one package of lady fingers in half and lay them in the bottom of a 9X13 pan (8 on each side, 8 sideways down center). Cover with half the pistachio mixture. Repeat with rest of lady fingers and pistachio mixture. Top with remaining whipped topping and garnish with nuts, chocolate shavings or anything else you desire.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
** A large angel food cake may be substituted for the lady fingers.
*** Freeze a chocolate candy bar, then use a vegetable peeler to "shave."
This dessert is best if made a day in advance. Keep refrigerated until serving time.
