Spice up your cake with the herbs that you like and try to add new flavors to your meals :)
In this case I used light mozzarella cheese, but can choose another type of cheese. There are cheeses with less fat content such as: lean cheese or ricotta.
Avoid buying processed masses, if you make caserita takes a few minutes and it will also be less expensive. :)
The garnish that I chose to accompany this portion of cake is a fresh and colorful salad of cucumbers, tomato and orange. :)
