Ingredients

125 ml (½ cup) light ricotta
30 ml (2 tbsp) sugar
30 g (1 oz) semisweet chocolate, chopped finely
2 ripe pears, peeled, halved and cored
1 lemon, juice only
75 ml (1/3 cup) pistachio nuts, chopped finely
Melted chocolate, to taste

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the ricotta, sugar and half the chocolate. Refrigerate.
  2. Cut a thin slice off the round part of each pear half so it lies flat. Brush immediately with lemon juice to prevent discolouring.
  3. Place the chopped pistachios on a plate and coat the outside of each pear half with nuts.
  4. Fill the cavity of each pear half with an equal amount of the cheese mixture, sprinkle with remaining chocolate.
  5. Serve drizzled with melted chocolate.
