I've got all the ingredients I need to make a lemon mousse tonight, except marscapone. Do you think I can substiute low fat soft cheese instead? If it was just for me and DH I would risk it but we are having guests as well.
if you are making lemon you won't notice it being salty - assume you will add the grated zest too - that helps to pack a punch - if in doubt add some more from another lemon or if you have it in your cupboard a drop or two of lemon oil.
CG - find it strange you think Philly is strongly flavoured, maybe a little over salted.
Tend to use the Sainsb' basics cheese its nearly as good as philly and cheaper too.
