What Are the Best Desserts to Follow a Pasta Feast?

Pasta is treat enough for many people — they push back from the table and don't want a bite more to eat. But what if you're someone who likes to end a meal with something sweet, even if you just had a big plate of rich pasta? What's the best dessert to follow a pasta feast?

Personally, I feel that something very light is best after a pasta meal. Sometimes I forgo dessert entirely and have a glass of port or another dessert wine instead.

If you do want dessert, what about a sorbet or granita? Here are two that would especially good after pasta:

Blackberry Cabernet Granita (No Ice Cream Maker Necessary!)
Faloodeh (Persian Rose Water Ice)

What do you think? What's your favorite sort of dessert to follow a big meal of pasta?
