Rhubarb Strawberry Panna Cotta

strawberryduo One of my most favorite, sinful desserts is panna cotta.  So creamy, rich, and oh-s0 delicious.  This sweetened, cooked-cream treat sets like a custard, minus the egg yolk.  You can flavor it, top it with fruit, and even go dairy-free!  Since it's summer, and I love my fresh summer fruit and berries, I decided to create a true vanilla bean panna cottta topped with rhubarb and strawberry compote.

And to turn it up a notch? I added a bit of basil when cooking down the compote for an extra layer of flavor.
