Panna Cotta With Fresh Strawberry Sauce

Panna Cotta With Fresh Strawberry Sauce

Living Well 7

"My own version of the Italian dessert favorite. 'Panna Cotta' literally means 'cooked cream.' I made it for my husband to take to a work function and they loved it! They send him home with a request for it every year now! I created the simple strawberry sauce to accompany it. It really makes the dish!"

  1. Pour the milk into a bowl; sprinkle the gelatin over the milk. Allow mixture to sit until the gelatin softens, about 5 minutes.
  2. Combine the cream and 1/4 cup sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the gelatin mixture; cook and stir until gelatin dissolves completely, about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla extract. Pour the mixture evenly into ramekins; cover and chill at least 4 hours.
  3. To make the strawberry sauce, combine the strawberries, 2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan over medium heat. While the mixture cooks, crush the strawberries with a potato masher. Simmer the sauce until the sugar has dissolved and the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes; cool.
  4. Remove chilled ramekins from the refrigerator shortly before serving. Dip the bottoms of the cups in warm water to help loosen the custard. Run a thin-bladed knife around the inner edge of each ramekin to loosen the dessert; turn onto a dessert plate to unmold. Spoon strawberry sauce over panna cotta to serve.

The dessert is really great and yummy. I follow the ingredient for pudding. For the strawberry sauce, I make it much simpler. I use about 200 grams of strawberry, mix with 2 tablespoons of sug...

Love this easy recipe! I used a whole vanilla bean instead of the vanilla extract (softened bean in the milk, then scraped out the seeds & cooked it over low heat longer). It was a hit at our...

ewwww didn't turn out the right hardness even after a few DAYS in fridge. It mushed all over the plate and had little flavour.

Like and tasty - not too sweet - an easy elegant dessert!
