    Pikake21's Note:

    This tart looks so tasty with the prosciutto sprinkling the top! I saw this being made on Everyday Italian, and knew I had to make it myself.

      A big hit. We have a weekly pie night with friends. Usually I'm left with lots of leftovers. Not with this recipe. The cheese was a little hard to spread, I used my fingers to smush it into an even layer. For the pears, I bought three different types. The pears that were more crisp rather than soft worked much better. None of them got very golden, the the flavor was still great.

      The flavors of this are really good. In making it, make sure you slice your pears thickly or else they get wimpy when you cook them. Also the cheese mixture is difficult to spread. Well worth the effort. Thanks!
