Roasted Pears with Sage and Crispy Prosciutto
4 medium Bosc pears, stemmed, cored, and cut into sixths
24 small fresh sage leaves
4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto*(See Cook's Notes), cut into thirds lengthwise
Place a rack in upper third of the oven and heat to 450 degrees F.
Place 1 sage leaf on a pear slice and secure by wrapping 1 piece prosciutto like a "belt" around the pear.
Repeat to make 24 pieces.
Evenly space pears on a baking sheet and place in oven to cook until prosciutto is crisp and pears are slightly softened, about 15 minutes.
Serve immediately.
Pears can be assembled up to 2 hours ahead. Store covered in the refrigerator until ready to cook. Pears can also be served uncooked, if desired.
Cook's Note: Place prosciutto in freezer for 10 minutes to facilitate slicing.
