Neko's Favorite Fruit Salad

3 eggs, beaten
2 T. cornstarch
3/4 cup sugar
3 T. lemon juice
1 6 or 7 oz. pkg macaroni rings
1 pint whipping cream, whipped
2 15 oz. cans fruit cocktail, drained
2 to 3 bananas, sliced

In a medium saucepan, whip together the eggs, sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice.  Cook, stirring continuously, until thickened.  Set aside to cool. Cook macaroni rings according to directions on the package; drain and rinse with cold water.  Combine drained macaroni and the egg/sugar mixture.  (I usually do this the evening before I want to serve the salad.)  Whip the cream and sweeten with 1 cup sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla.  Mix together the whipped cream and the macaroni/egg/sugar mixture.  Add the drained fruit cocktail and sliced bananas.  Chill for an hour or so before serving so flavors can mingle.  (I like cherries so I usually cut  up a cup or so of salad cherries and add them along with the fruit cocktail.)  Makes a large bowl.
