Got Rhubarb?

With rhubarb coming into season, here is my favorite dessert recipe using rhubarb. It's very easy and delicious, pretty much like a dump cake.

Dice 4-5 cups of rhubarb, add one 3oz. box strawberry jello dry, and 3/4 cup white sugar. Mix together and spread into a buttered 9x13 pan.

Sprinkle one box yellow cake mix over the rhubarb and dot with butter.  Pour 1 cup water in the four corners.( 1/4 cup in each corner)
Bake for 35-45 minutes at 350.....

 then serve warm with Ice Cream!!
