1 c. strong coffee or espresso
2 T. sugar
2 tsp corn starch
1 large box instant chocolate pudding
2 c. low-fat milk
1 c. part skim Ricotta Cheese
Half of a 13-oz fat free Pound Cake cut into 2-inch cubes
3 c. fat-free Whipped Topping, divided
1 1/2 oz. piece Bittersweet Chocolate, shaved for garnish

Prepare syrup: In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring coffee or espresso and sugar to a boil. Add corn starch and cook 5 to 6 minutes or until thickened. Remove coffee syrup mixture from heat and cool.

Prepare Chocolate: Prepare pudding according to package directions, but use only 2 cups of milk instead of 4 cups. Chill.

Prepare Ricotta: Mix ricotta cheese and 1 cup whipped topping.

Assembly: Press pound cake cubes into bottom of a large glass bowl or trifle dish. Pour coffee syrup evenly over cake. Spread ricotta mixture evenly over cake. Spread chocolate pudding mixture on top of ricotta layer. Top with remaining whipped topping. Garnish with chocolate shavings. Chill at least 1 hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld.
