1 can (8-oz) crushed pineapple in its own juice
2 cups sour cream
1 tbsp granulated sugar

In a deep, narrow-bottomed bowl combine the pudding mix, pineapple including juice, sour cream, and sugar. Beat at the lowest speed of electric mixer for only 1 minute to blend. Pour the mixture into the prepared pie shell and chill for around 3 hours.
