1 ripe Anjou or Bosc pear

1/2 a lemon

1/2 cup whole milk ricotta cheese

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Honey, for drizzling

1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts


  1. Halve and core the pear, then cut into slices, leaving the stem-end intact and not cutting through to separate the slices. Squeeze the lemon juice over the cut side of the pear halves. 
  2. Season the ricotta with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, then place in 2 mounds on a plate. Top the ricotta mounds with the sliced pear halves, gently fanning out the slices. Drizzle the pears with honey and sprinkle with the pine nuts.
