Perfect Pineapple Casserole


3 tablespoons pineapple gelatin mix
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
1 (20-ounce) can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 cup finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 cup butter-flavored cracker crumbs (like Ritz)
2 tablespoons butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together gelatin mix, sugar, cornstarch, and water until smooth. Bring mixture to a boil and continue to whisk until thickened. Stir in pineapple chunks and cheese. Pour mixture into baking dish.

In a medium bowl, combine cracker crumbs and butter. Sprinkle over pineapple mixture.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown and heated through.
