My family loves cannoli, but I don't love making the shells. This parfait is an easy way to enjoy the flavor without spending time baking the shells. —Anna Ginsberg, Austin, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2013

"I think I would leave the Ricotta &Cream Cheese Out.Not a big fan of those things.Make it with cut up Chocolate Cake and Cherry Pie Filling."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2013

"For JOYSANS. You can make it in a full fat version by simply buying the ricotta, cream cheese and whipped topping that does not state "reduced fat or fat-free". You can check the fat content on the label to compare."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2013

"JOYSANS just use full fat ingredients where it says fat free or reduced fat, that simple"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2013

"To make it full fat just don't use fat free or low fat items.Its just that easy to change it to full fat version. Wink"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2013

"Would definitely make this again, but would eliminate the Fat Free and reduced fat ingredients, far tastier without them."
