I saw Giada make this on her show today and thought it sounded like an easy healthy and different sort of breakfast. Let me know what you think. I intend to make this soon!

This was really very good and easy to do. I made it with homemade ricotta, peach-pineapple preserves, and granola. I think my servings were about 1/2 of what is posted here. My husband also enjoyed this dish. Made for PAC Fall 2009.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To toast the sliced almonds, arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for 6 to 8 minutes until lightly golden. Cool completely before using.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the ricotta cheese and yogurt together until smooth. In each parfait glass, layer 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture, 1 tablespoon raspberry jam and 1/4 cup of granola. Repeat the layers. Spread the remaining ricotta mixture on top and garnish with toasted almonds before serving.
