Simple Ricotta Dessert
In southern Italy where the ricotta is super-fresh, there are all kinds of simple uses. We spread it on bread, stir it into sauce, or just eat it with a spoon! This country dolce dates back at least a century, when cooking and life were simpler. It's still a delicious pleasure that impress your guests (and doesn't require measuring or baking!) The pears can be cored and stuffed with ricotta, or you can do this no-fuss version.
Peel and slice two fresh, ripe pears. Arrange four or five slices on a plate.
Put a dollop of fresh ricotta on top.
Drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with chocolate flakes or dust with cocoa powder. You can add a pinch of cinnamon or ginger, too.
This can also be arranged on top of a slice of pound cake or sponge cake.
