Chef Way Lidia Bastianich fills fresh homemade ravioli with a delicious sweet-salty mixture of pear, Pecorino and mascarpone.

Easy Way Toss store-bought farfalle pasta with pears, Pecorino and mascarpone—no stuffing required.

  1. 12 ounces farfalle pasta
  2. 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  3. 2 large Bartlett pears—peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 1/2 cup mascarpone
  6. 1/2 cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese, plus more for serving
  7. 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the farfalle pasta until al dente. Drain the farfalle thoroughly, reserving 3/4 cup of the pasta cooking water.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large, deep skillet, melt the butter. Add the sliced pears and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until softened but not browned, about 5 minutes. Season the pears with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the farfalle, mascarpone, Pecorino and 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water to the skillet and cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until the sauce is thick and creamy, about 2 minutes; add more pasta cooking water as needed. Season the pasta with salt and pepper and stir in the chopped parsley. Transfer the pasta to bowls and serve.
