Skinny Roasted Pears with 5 Minute Walnut Sauce

Skinny Roasted Pears with 5 Minute Walnut Sauce

Skinny and luscious! Imagine my surprise when I discovered that this dessert is healthy and good for you! When pears are ripening in the autumn, look for the plainest type…Bosc. That’s when you’ll know you’ve got the best tasting pear. Bosc pears are the underdog of pears, but, don’t let that discourage you from trying this recipe. It’s so simple yet, so incredibly delicious!
