Ricotta and Jelly Dessert

This dessert I used to have back in Lithuania and I simply love it! It looks colourful and playful and it has smooth texture. AND it includes one of my favourite ingredients – ricotta! I don’t need to mention again that I love ricotta (love is too weak word, maybe I have to say – crazy or obsessed).  Little and big kids enjoy this dessert a lot! It’s a real deal!
