Really good, but my pears were a little (actually, a lot) beyond their prime and they turned dark really fast. Still tasted good though, and cheese/pears is a favorite combo for us anyways.!

This is a wonderful pairing! A warm summer evening on the patio this delicious appetizer and a glass of wine who could ask for more.

What a delight! I served this recipe as a side to Lamb Stew. Just the right addition. I used shredded Romano instead of cubes because that is what I had on hand. This recipe will go well with any hot, spicy food. I'll make it again for sure.

What a good combination, the cheese really does its thing here. I think this would probably work well with apples too.
