Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 13 x 9 pan.
In a large bowl mix together cake mix and pudding mix. Make a well in the center and pour in eggs, soda, oil, pistachios and green food coloring. Blend ingredients, then beat for 2 minutes at medium speed.
Pour into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 55 minutes, or until cake springs back when lightly pressed. Cool in pan 15 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Cube.
While cake is in the oven, in a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mixes and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Add the pudding mixture to the cream cheese mixture and mix until well blended. Fold 1½ tubs of the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture.
In a large trifle bowl, alternate layers of cubed pieces of cake and pudding mixture, ending with a pudding layer. Top with remaining ½ tub of whipped topping.
