Skip the ricotta mix -it's grainy and altogether odd. Top the strawberry/basil/vinegar with Yoplait honey vanilla Greek yogurt. It will blow your mind, and that yogurt has twice the protein of most yogurts plus has no High Fructose Corn Syrup. Don't skip the basil - it really adds something special. Submitted by:

I would definitely substitute calorie free sweetners for the sugar in this recipe and use non fat ricotta. Balsamic has all the sugar in it that I would want for this recipe....but I think with those substitutions, I will give it a try. The basil is a wonderful touch. Submitted by:

Use fat-free Greek yogurt instead of ricotta or pre-sweetened yogurt. You can control the amount of sugar. If the strawberries are sweet enouogh, you don't need the sugar at all. I think adding sugar to strawberries does nothing for them - makes them too sweet. Submitted by:

This is so easy to do just for me. DH does not like strawberries so i eat them often. I use cottage cheese the same way. I shuddered at the thought of balsamic which I use on salads. I was surprised this was so good. I whipped up the cream in my magic bullet with the honey1/4 tsp. I used no sugar. Submitted by:

sounds great - I will try it with low fat Greek yogurt - and use lavender instead of vanilla as strawberries and lavender go well together - just don;t use much or it tastes like medicine! Submitted by:

I made this with no fat cottage cheese and my emersion blender. I worried about the strong balsamic odor in our kitchen while making it, but this turned out to be a nice treat. Good to keep on hand when you have strawberries up-the-kazoo. Submitted by:

I am not sure the accurate sugar count per serving. When I check it out in the recipe calculator ( put it in recipe makeover and then hit calculate) The sugar comes out to 16.9 not 4.6, am I doing something wrong or is the sugar count off. My brother-in-law is a diabetic so it is important to me Submitted by:

Made from 'memory'. Thought sounded terrific! I was dying for a treat and needed protein, so I used a flatout wrap as a crepe. Well, i loved the balsamic and strawberries-- basil wow. And touch of maple syrup (no sugar around) BUT i forgot to play with ricotta. Funny even with that, liked texture Submitted by:

Really great. I substituted Greek nonfat plain yogurt for the ricotta, and didn't have to use the food processor. Perfect summer dessert and so easy to make. Submitted by:

I used full-fat ricotta and omitted the brown sugar, and it was delicious! I could eat this everyday all summer long, it's so refreshing. Submitted by:

I loved the balsamic/brown sugar combination; the flavor is enhanced with time. yes, ricotta is grainy and I don't see myself making it, but I loved this dish. It's like a makeover of a recent Sunset magazine recipe. I will do it again. Submitted by:

I really enjoyed the sweet sour aspect of the balsamic sauce, it reminds me of a favorite family treat(dipping the strawberries in sour cream and brown sugar) but without the fat content...brillant. Really liked the pairing and will certainly serve to guests at our next party. Submitted by:

I want to try this. For lasagna I use a 2 to 1 mixture of lowfat cottage cheese and sour cream (nonfat or lowfat) - that may be an option for people looking for something other than ricotta. I'll try it and update. :) Submitted by:
