I used this as a filling for crepes along with some sliced fresh strawberries. Everyone agreed it was very good but just a bit too sweet. I will make it again but reduce the sugar by at least half.
This was surprisingly good! Much lighter than I expected for a topping made with ricotta!!! I served it over One Point Pumpkin Pie (Crustless) instead of the usual whipped cream topping. I also tasted it by itself and found that the fresh flavor was being subdued by the pie. While I think I might like just whipped cream on a spicy pumpkin pie, I would prefer this on something like a fresh fruit bowl, or some shortcake (as suggested) so I can enjoy the ricotta flavor. But it is so lovely to have something different to do instead of the same old thing. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue
I may never used plain cool whip again. I made this up using fat-free ricotta and fat-free cool whip and served over strawberries on top of slightly sweet biscuits. Sooo wonderful. Thanks for posting this nice little recipe.
