This is a fresh tasting dish that is easy to put together. I used d'anjou pears because they keep their crunch and it was a good choice. Apple juice was what we had on hand instead of wine. I thought that the ginger was going to overpower the dish but it was just the right amount. Served on a bed of Nif's Simple Parmesan Pappardelle Pasta. Made for 2009 Faves. Thanks Chef at Heart! :)
5 Stars! DH and I loved this, it's been requested for a repeat appearance soon. The pears are so much more subtle than apples. Everything went together quickly as expected. I used canned lite pears (14 oz can had the equivalent of 2 1/2 pears) because I didn't want to wait for fresh pears to ripen, and that choice obviously did not detract from our enjoyment.
