Strawberry jello pie

I love summer.. (well minus the really hot heat )... and I love summertime fresh fruits & vegetables.  One of them being strawberries :)  I make strawberry freezer jam (already made a triple batch :) , lots of fruit salad, and every year make this strawberry jello pie... It is fast & easy ..which is a winner in my book... 
I used sugar free strawberry jello, but you can use regular too. I serve this with thawed whipped topping, but you can use whipped cream too.  I love it equally as well, but since my little guys & big guys love spoonfuls of whipped cream outta the can, it sure doesn't last long ever at our house..LOL .  Also, store this in the fridge and it is best eaten within one day of making it.  Make it soon, it is super good, so much so that my 3 year old has been asking me about strawberry pie, ever since I told him I was making it... so funny.... Enjoy
