Beautiful dessert using a touch of marsala wine so it feels really decadent but I use low cal/ low fat ingredients for almost guilt free enjoyment. Feel free to use different berries if you like. Cook time is chill time. Hope you enjoy!

This is a beautiful dessert (that turned out like the photo!). I made to accompany lasagna. It is creamy and rich (but not "too" rich). A 9 inch square glass pan worked perfectly (and I just flipped my square layer of l. fingers right on top). I didn't have marsala so I used a pinch of sherry and orange juice. I used light Cool Whip, no fat cream cheese and reg. Jello). Definitely make the day before for the ladyfingers to meld with the filling! I gave a taste test a few hours later and I KNEW it needed the extra time. The lemon flavor is very subtle and next time I will add some freshly grated lemon peel. This is a great dessert and the prep time is really 15 min. Thanks Little Wing! Roxygirl

This was ok the first day, but it was pretty good the second. So I would suggest to make it a day ahead. Actually, let me make it 4 stars, because it is really simple to make, it's pretty and makes a good presentation piece also.

Looks delic... Haven't tried... wondering for those of you who've done it, could I take this to a summertime BBQ or is that too much for the jello part. I don't see anything that'll spoil in the heat.
