"This dessert is light and very delicious. The ricotta adds a nice touch."

Reviewed Apr. 5, 2010

"I made this dessert the night before I was going to serve it... which might have been my mistake, but when I served it, the yogurt had separated and the bottom of the dish was say the least, I was disappointed, if you are going to use yogurt, you either must serve it right away, or I would try draining off the whey before mixing it w/the ricotta, or use Greek yogurt."
