Wonderful meal ending dessert

I made this recently.  First, you need really good ricotta.  I mixed mine with honey.  Made all the difference.  I would run this thru a food processor in the future to get it really smooth.  Also, while the dessert was perfect as is I would suggest adding a cookie crumble of biscotti vanilla or a vanilla shortbread to it.  The balance would be amazing.  Scoop into cute little glasses too for something that is stunning.   If I had n ot added the honey to the ricotta and I know that made a difference, I'd give 5 stars.
