This unusual combination of food would be good as an entre or light meal, however I ate it as a main meal with some cabbage and pickled vegetables.

Easy to make, it is something very unusual, and I ate both of these as a main.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 1 - 2 as a main

1 Pear, sliced into about 8 pieces
tbsp olive oil
tbsp white balsamic vinegar
tbsp sugar
200 g ricotta
About cup Parmesan, grated
tbsp oregano
tbsp lemon zest
1 small egg, lightly beaten
Sage leaves
Cabbage - optional

Preheat the oven to 200/180 fan forced.

Put the pear, vinegar, sugar, oil and some salt and pepper on a baking tray, and toss to mix up.


Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the pears are going a golden colour.

Mix the ricotta, Parmesan, lemon, oregano, egg, some salt and pepper to taste, in a bowl. Stir well to combine them.

Put this mixture into two cup, lightly oiled ovenproof dishes.


Put these on a baking tray and bake for about 15 minutes or until set.

Turn them out when cool enough, being careful they do not break - run a spatula or knife around the edges first.


Arrange some sage leaves on the top (optional), and I served this meal with raw cabbage leaves and home made pickled vegetables.
