I know this sounds a strange combination but is absolutely delicious and really works well! It is a firm favourite with the family. This is also a good dish to do if you are having a buffet and can be made the day before if covered with clingfilm in the fridge.
Note you can use a large tin of pears instead of fresh pears. As this is quite filling you will probably only want a small portion. (You can always go back for seconds! Lol)
