      5 stars for this gorgeous, outstanding, delicious dessert. It tasted a light, fluffy lime cheesecake with a fruity strawberry sauce. The pureed strawberry layer is quite runny due to the frozen strawberries and juice. However, the layers still held, and the consistancy and texture differences made this dessert all that much more special. After 30 minutes in the fridge some of the strawberry juices had soaked into the graham layer, which was okay by me. I did not have very big wine glasses so used three parfait glasses, which gave a good sized serving. Thanks so much for such an original winner of a creation. Reviewed for RSC #11.

      We loved this recipe and really enjoyed the light taste. And it is so easy to prepare. Only change I would make would be a bit less ricotta and a bit more Cool Whip (I used fat free Cool Whip & light ricotta).
