    Three pears halved is hard to serve 4 people.
    Much easier to eat if not cored.
    Recipe says sliced thinly but the pears shown are halved and not browned. - 9/25/12

    This is great! I have done another version with broiled pears topped with ricotta cheese and a drizzle of good balsamic vinegar.
    Sounds strange but is wonderful.

    I have 2 pear trees in my yard but usually give the pears away because there are way too many to eat. This sounds like a recipe I'll really like so now I'm looking forward to the trees bearing fruit again so I can try it. - 1/20/09
