READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by alligirl

Taken from the Whole Foods market website and posted for ZWT. "Sweet and healthful, this dessert bridges the seasons between summer and autumn by combining crisp pears with Italian ricotta cheese whipped with raw honey. A delectable way to celebrate the changing seasons." Sounds wonderful and light, for after a summer supper. **Cook/prep time does NOT include 2 hour refrigeration time.
