ROASTED pears with blue cheese is a simple, light snack that can be the perfect starter to a dinner party.
ROASTED PEARS WITH BLUE CHEESE
1 beurre bosc pear, peeled, halved and cored
150g mild and creamy blue cheese or goats cheese
40g baby rocket leaves
2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
Warm crusty bread, to serve (optional)
Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Cut a thin slice off the rounded side of the pears so they sit flat. Place on the baking tray. Crumble cheese over the pears. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven.
Divide the rocket between two serving plates. Place warm pears on the rocket. Drizzle with the balsamic glaze and sprinkle with the pine nuts. Serve with bread as an entree or on a cheese platter.
