This is a great warm alternative to yogurt and fruit. Baking the ricotta removes moisture, turning this into a sort of cheesecake for breakfast dish without all the fat. You can even stir some fresh blueberries and raspberries into the stewed cherries when you take it from the heat for a fresh burst of juicy flavor. This is great on waffles or with a bagel.
