Pear & Prosciutto Bruschetta with Honeyed Ricotta

Rarely I have I had such a mix of flavours that compliment one another as well as this recipe does!
Recently I have been on a bit of a mission to create my portfolio and recruiting a few people to help me achieve this goal. Last week my father made this recipe when he had a guest over for dinner. He sat this heavily plated bruschetta dish down onto the table and before I had even taken my first bite I knew I wanted him to make it for my cause. It smelt and looked amazing!
This recipe comes from the (freebie) Coles magazine you can pick up at your local Coles supermarket – and boasts a cool $2.70 per serve!

Pear & Prosciutto Bruschetta with Honeyed Ricotta

1/4 cup  olive oil
8 slices  top quality bruschetta bread
250g  (8oz)smooth ricotta
1  tsp honey, warmed and runny
2 pears, thinly sliced lengthways
200g  (6.5oz) sliced prosciutto
Basil leaves and cracked pepper to serve
Preheat the oven to 200 C (400 F). Brush the olive oil over both sides of the bruschetta bread. Place on a baking tray and bake for 5-10 minutes until lightly toasted.
Mix together the ricotta and honey. Spread the ricotta mixture over the bruschetta bread and arrange the pear slices over the ricotta. Cut each piece of prosciutto into half. Loosely roll two halves and place on top of the pear. (Repeat for each slice).
Top each slice with a few small basil leaves and some cracked pepper.
