Easy Zabaglione ~ a quick Italian dessert for Easter

Easy Zabaglione & Whipped Cream

My nephew was asking me if I had any recipe ideas for Easter that I could share.  I do.  I'm working on a few that I'm getting ready to post, but I thought I would see what I could find that was Italian, to keep up with the family tradition thing ~ this time for his side of the family.  I found this recipe for Zabaglione that looked good, but I wanted something that was egg-free, low cal & really easy to prepare.  I was inspired to go into the kitchen & see what I could come up with.  I created a recipe that is a spin on Zabaglione.  I think it works as an easy, elegant adult dessert.  So, this post is for my nieces, Leslee, Desy & my nephew, David ~ luckily they are all old enough to drink.  :)
