Banana Pudding

I saw this banana pudding recipe on Facebook and it reminded me of how I use to make banana pudding to take to potluck events...
I would purchase a gallon can of premade vanilla pudding at the store...brought it home and dumped out in a big bowl...sliced up a half dozen bananas into the pudding and stirred...
then I took the container I was going to take to the potluck and placed vanilla wafers in the bottom and poured a little pudding on top to hold them in place...
then I placed rows of vanilla wafers all around the sides of the bowl adding more pudding to hold each layer...when all the pudding was in the container I made a "flower" design on top with more vanilla wafers.
Every time I took this everyone raved about what good banana pudding it was (and wanted the recipe) and it was always gone first. For those of you would prefer something more is a recipe from Paula Deen.
