“I love Panna Cotta, the traditional Italian eggless custard. It makes a wonderfully light finish to a heavy meal. Occasionally, I depart from the traditional recipe and add a bit of sour cream for a whole new depth of flavor. Fresh fruit is delightful with this dish, though you could serve it with a silky chocolate sauce. Very nice served in heart shaped ramekins! Prep time includes chilling time for the custard. Leftover sauce may be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and served over ice cream, lemon tarts, or ?”
