"Really like this rhubarb dessert. I did modify it by using sugar free cool whip...just because that is what I had on hand. And instead of folding all of the rhubarb into the cool whip, I added it as needed so it could be used several days since there are just the two of us. I would like to try it with the whipped cream some time. I do prefer the cream. When I had strawberries on hand, I added some sliced ones to the mixture in individual dishes as well. ?? That was last year... This year I am going to try using Truvia in place of the sugar, since my husband is diabetic."
