I'm not a huge fan of bananas.
Take six or seven large bananas (skins on) and place them on a cookie sheet, then cover them with a piece of parchment paper. Place them in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove three bananas from the oven and let them cool down. They will be blackened and very very HOT! Hot bananas everyone! Get your red-hot bananas! See? That doesn't work....it just doesn't even sound good.
Peel the bananas and slice into 1/2 inch slices.
Here's where the Cooking Light recipe hits the skids. I cheated. Instead of making the pudding from scratch.................I used Jello brand Banana pudding. Yea, yea, I know. I've always taken the road less traveled. you experience so many fun things that way! Where was I? Oh yes. The pudding.
