In a medium bowl with an electric mixer, whip ricotta cheese, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Divide into six serving dishes and chill. Combine vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; simmer 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture lightly coats a spoon. Cool completely. Toss strawberries with balsamic syrup. Evenly divide strawberries into each dish. Sprinkle basil on each; serve immediately.
