Pineapple Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallows Recipe

Pineapple, sugar and marshmallows lend a super sweetness to sweet potatoes. I've been making the casserole for years, both for special occasions at home and for casual dinners. —Ruth Leach, Shreveport, Louisiana

"We have a "traditional" sweet potato recipe but one year I tried this one. I am not allowed to come to family holidays without brining this with me now. My family gives it a 5 out of 5 rating every time. The pineapple makes the diference. I lost my recipe so thank you for keeping it on the website. I would have been in real trouble this year. :)"

"My family really liked this recipe this year for Thanksgiving. This says a lot, because they are used to the traditional sweet potatoes with brown sugar and lots of marshmallows. I opted for a slightly healthier version, and it was a hit. My only mistake was that I cooked it a bit too long, and the marshmallows were too crispy. I will definitely make this one again."

Reviewed Nov. 7, 2009

"I made this one today and it was a total success , in fact some of my guests took some home with them and some wanted the recipe, too bad that there are only 5 stars on the rating I would have given this one a 10 +"
