Tuscan Honey Roasted Pears

Here's a sweet winter warmer-upper straight from my Grandfather's collection. Buon appetito!

4-6 large Bosc or Anjou pears
1 cup chianti wine
1 cup sugar
1 cup honey
2/3 lb. Pecorino Toscano (Tuscan goat cheese)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Trim bottom of pears to allow pears to stand upright. In small glass oven dish, place pears upright. Pour wine and sugar over and around pears. Place in oven and cook 30 minutes or until tender. Remove from liquid and cool. Set liquid aside. Place pears on individual serving plates. Drizzle with honey and red wine sauce. Using a vegetable peeler, shave thin pieces of pecorino cheese over pear and serve.
