Directions

Set aside 16 of the smallest strawberries and cut the rest into small pieces. Put in a bowl with the lemon juice and caster sugar and leave to soak for 1 hour. Push the ricotta through the smallest sieve of a mouli, add cream and Campari, mix well. Sieve the icing sugar into the mixture to your own taste, put a third of the mixture aside and mix the strawberries into the remaining ricotta.

Prepare pink dessert plates and divide the mixture into 16 breast-shaped molds, 2 for each plate. With a moistened spatula smooth the ricotta over the molds and place a strawberry on the top of each 'breast'. You can make the molds 3 hours in advance and store in a refrigerator.

    I followed the recipe to the letter. I do love Campari in a summer drink, so I know the flavor. However, when I added it to the mixture the result was one I did NOT like!! No one in the family would do more than taste the result. The expense and labor of making the desert made me even more angry. Skip the Campari and I am sure the desert will be much better.
