Was looking for a dessert to wow the family and thought of this when I saw an internet posting for chocolate noodles. I have the say the family, and the other folks who have tried this, have all raved....imagine a lasagna made with chocolate noodles, fresh berries, mascarpone, sour cream and brown sugar.
Notes from the Test Kitchen:
All of the wonderful fresh fruit and ample sauce really make this recipe something fabulous indeed! We were unable to locate chocolate noodles, but the regular were still fab in their own right.
Lay 3 cooked lasagna (or chocolate) noodles in the bottom of 9-inch-square glass or metal baking pan you’ve coated with nonstick spray or buttered.
In a large bowl, combine the ricotta and mascarpone cheeses, white sugar, and egg, and beat until almost smooth.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, chili powder, and melted butter. Mix well.
Gently fold the sliced strawberries into the raspberries, blackberries and blueberries, being careful not to crush the raspberries.
Top the first layer of lasagna noodles with one-third of the berry mixture followed by one-third of the flour-sugar-spice mixture and one third of the cheese-egg-sugar mixture. Repeat, adding two more layers of all three components.
Bake for 45 minutes in an oven or over indirect heat in covered barbecue grill, until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Remove, cool for 10–15 minutes, and then serve with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
