After a busy day working in the gardens we settled in to prepare our evening meal. My husband, who loves dropping what he believes are subliminal hints, mentions a ricotta cream I made last year. That particular dish, Unfortunately,was made with grilled pineapple, which we were currently out of. All was not lost however as we had a healthy supply of mango. With a little experimentation I managed to pull a rabbit out of my hat, and put together a delectable dessert..
