Strawberries with Marsala

This simple Italian dessert will make you look like you know what you’re doing with minimal prep, time and no heat!

It kicks your basic strawberries to a new level, but they’re just as versatile…So you can rely on your favorite fix’ns like ice cream, pound cake, whipped cream or mascarpone.  Any recipe that gives me an excuse to buy mascarpone is a keeper in my book.

Slices will take on extra marsala flavor. I wanted to keep it subtle and my strawberries weren’t too big so I kept them whole.
