    Baked Ricotta Cakes w. Red Sauce


    Ingredients
    1 cup ricotta cheese (part skim)
    2 beaten egg whites
    2 tbsp honey
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    4 cups mixed fresh or frozen fruit (suggested: strawberries, raspberries, cherries)

    Serves 4.

    Direction
    1. Preheat oven to 350°.

    2. Place ricotta cheese in a bowl and break it up with a wooden spoon. Add the beaten egg whites, honey and vanilla and mix throughly until mixture is smooth.

    3. Spray 4 ramekins with PAM. Spoon the mixture evenly into the ramekins. Bake for 20 minutes until ricotta cakes rise and are golden.

    4. While these are cooking make the fruit sauce. Reserve 1/4 of the fruit for decoration. Put the rest into the saucepan (use a little water if the fruit is fresh) and heat gently until softened. Leave to cool slightly. (Remove any pits if using cherries!)

    5. Press the fruit through a strainer. Taste and sweeten with honey as needed (the nutritional totals account for 2 tablespoons, but this will obviously change if you use less or more). Serve the sauce warm or cold over the ricotta cakes. Decorate the place with the reserved berries.

    Nutrition Totals Per Serving
    *I calculated this recipe using 4c of strawberries for the fruit.
