Strawberries and basil Tiramisu with ricotta and cream cheese (Tiramisu de frutillas con queso crema y ricotta)











A long, long time ago I wanted to make this Tiramisu, so different but absolutelywonderful. :  Strawberries and basil Tiramisu!
Taking advantage of that I still have a lot of basil (fortunately) I finally did it last weekend. 
The strawberries there are still  here, they are seen until the winter and in the northern hemisphere they are at their peak. The best time.
It's really good. I hope you enjoy it!

But the best thing about the summer were the tomatoes, the basil, the fruits,cantaloupes and water melon, peaches, in short, all that summer means.
