Roasted Stuffed Pears with Ricotta Cream

Roasted Stuffed Pears with Ricotta Cream

Posted 2014-06-22 by Annalisa Brownfollow
This decadent tasting but very low-fat and healthy dessert will surprise everyone who tucks into this winter warming dish. I haven’t always been fond of pears but roasting brings out a crispy and caramelised taste and texture to the pear. When combined with prunes, pine nuts and honey, the rich vibrant flavours seep into the pear’s flesh creating absolute culinary bliss. Top with a little Ricotta Cream and you know you’ve made it to heaven.
