Strawberries in Marsala with Sweetened Ricotta

Simple and Truly Delicious!

This unforgettably wonderful dessert was prepared for me by my good friend, Lisa Rogers. She is also a contributor that helps us help the planet šŸ™‚

I was so taken with the simplicity and deliciousness of this dish that I knew I wanted to share it with our readers.

If Marsala wine is not for you, try substituting it with a combination of –Ā¼ cup white grape juice, 2 tablespoons of sherry vinegar, and 2 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

And If that doesn’t suite your taste buds, try a flavored balsamic vinaigrette.
