For variety, use shards of cheese crisps in place of the Parmesan in the Watercress with Pears and Macadamia Nuts.

  1. 1 pound aged Asiago cheese, coarsely shredded
  2. Optional seasonings: sesame seeds or finely chopped macadamia nuts
  1. Sprinkle 6 tablespoon-size mounds of the cheese in a large nonstick skillet. Top each mound with a pinch of the seasonings. Cook the frico over moderately high heat until lacy and slightly set. Using a thin, flexible metal spatula, loosen and flip each frico and cook for 1 minute longer, or until crisp and golden. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Wipe out the skillet and repeat.
