    Lovely dessert and very simple to prepare. As the quantity of ricotta to use was not stated, I decided to omit it . I used a good quality low-fat vanilla bean yogurt and a family size can of sliced peaches.My family loved these. Photo also being posted. Reviewed for ZWT8 visit to Australia/NZ.

    I scaled this back for 3 serves and used 250 grams very light ricotta cheese for 3 serves and another 1/2 cup of sliced peaches to fill the wine glasses that I was serving in (that took them to 3/4 full) and I finely chopped 6 of the toasted macadamia nuts to serve on top. I would suggest using a pot thickened yoghurt as I think it would be thicker than the one I used hence I had to use more ricotta which made the mix a little grainly but overall a light and delicious dessert enjoyed by the DS, DM and myself. Thank you katew, made for Make My Recipe.

    Thick yogurt, as opposed to what? Thin? How much Ricotta? Bad recipe design...

    I wasn't sure how much ricotta to use so I used an equal amount of low-fat ricotta and fat-free vanilla yogurt. The flavor is very nice but I think I would have preferred to use only yogurt as the ricotta made the parfait a bit grainy. All in all this is a very nice, refreshing dessert that I would make again. Made for ZWT8

    Yum! What a hit! I used almond extract instead of vanilla (grabbed wrong bottle) and it was fine!<br/>Thanks, Kate!
