Mix together the ricotta cheese, yogurt, eggs, lemon rind, vanilla, sugar and melted margarine.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the cheese mixture and stir until just combined. Heat a griddle on medium heat.

For the strawberry sauce, combine the strawberries, lemon juice and honey. Serve sauce on top of the pancakes.
