Local Gourmet: Roasted Pears with Goat Cheese & Shallots

pears.jpgI 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.

    Sounds wonderful. I also made a fantastic – totally fantastic! – roasted pear recipe for dessert. So simple: pats of butter and a touch of brown sugar, sprinkled over pears, then roasted for…I don’t know. Until everything smelled good. Probably a half hour. I’m telling you, it was dizzyingly tasty…and this from a gal who doesn’t usually consider any non-chocolate dessert to be worth her time
