I picked up a basket of pears at the public market this week that were bursting with flavor. Try this Roasted Pears with Goat Cheese & Shallots recipe for an amazing weekend snack that’s quick and easy.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. You will need 3 firm Bosc pears, peeled, halved, cored (about 1 pound). Arrange the pears cut side up in an over safe bowl, with 2 tbls. of olive oil, 2 cloves of garlic, chopped, and 1/2 cup of chopped shallots. Sprinkle salt and pepper and a tbls. of honey over the goods. Add 1-2 cups of goat cheese over your pears.
Bake for a good 30-35 minutes, tossing the pears occasionally in the juices, until they are crisp-tender and beginning to brown.
Pair this with toasted pita or a warm baguette and drizzle with honey.
