Pears bake up beautifully, especially when sugared and spiced as they are in this yummy pie that 's made just like an apple pie. The pear slices are tossed in sugar, a bit of flour, cinnamon and ginger. The luscious pears are then piled into a pastry crust, sprinkled with lemon juice and topped with a second crust.
Fresh pasta is tossed with a simple yet flavorful sauce of garlic, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, sun-dried and fresh tomatoes, black olives, and white wine. Prawns and chicken are excellent additions to this recipe.
