Pear & Cinnamon Pasta

This is for one serving. Multiply for each person:

Toss together and roast @ 350 for ~20 mins:

  • 1 pear, cut up however you want
  • Some nuts, I use walnuts
  • Olive oil
  • Pinch of salt

Toss together so the pears are nicely covered in oil and roast

Make pasta

  • 100 grams of noodles (penne, bowties, fusilli or something similar) Cook in boiling salted water, strain, retain a little water

Combine everything above with:

  • 1 teaspoon butter or oil or less or more or a combo
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Smashed mush of 1 garlic clove (small)

Add a bit of leftover pasta water, if needed.

Then put on top when you serve it:

  • 1/4 cup feta


  • This is way more delicious than it should be

  • If you don't want the face punch of raw garlic, you can chop it up and throw it into the roasting pan with the pears - but do it about 1/2 way through the cooking time so the garlic doesn't burn

  • Serve in bowls. Hard to keep warm, so bowls help. Also can warm bowls first, and take feta out early so it comes to room temp
