Ingredients

3 tablespoons olive oil

20 small fresh sage leaves 

1/3 cup ricotta 

1 to 2 teaspoons honey 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

2 medium firm-ripe pears, such as Bartlett 

10 slices thinly-sliced prosciutto, halved 

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add the sage and fry, stirring occasionally, until the bubbling subsides, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate with a slotted spoon. Reserve the oil.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the ricotta, honey, 1 tablespoon of the reserved sage-frying oil, a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper until well combined.
  3. Cut each pear lengthwise into 10 slices (each approximately 1/4 inch wide). Wrap each in a 1/2 slice prosciutto. Arrange on a serving platter and top each slice with a dollop of ricotta and a fried sage leaf.
