Mascarpone substitute?

MysticYoYo | Jan 9, 2008 03:44 PM

Is there a healthier alternative to mascarpone? Giada has a fantastic recipe for Chicken with Mustard Mascarpone Marsala Sauce (can't rave about it enough!) but due to the mascarpone the fat/calorie content is over the top, something like 120 calories per tablespoon and 13.5 grams of fat. I get chest pains just reading the recipe.

I'd like to make this great recipe again; is there a substitute that will lend a similar taste/texture to the dish and that won't shorten the lifespan of my guests?
