TIRAMISU – the easiest and fastest version ever

Not only is this recipe super quick and easy, it also contains  less calories than the traditional version, as ricotta is used instead of mascarpone, but it tastes just as delicious. If you need a quick dessert for a special dinner, then this is it, as long as  you are not dairy or wheat intolerant or vegan.
