Prosciutto Wrapped Pears with Blue Cheese

Our appetizer-themed girls dinner was made complete with these prosciutto wrapped pears that Paige brought. I was impressed by how easy they were to put together and yet how impressive they looked as an appetizer (maybe I'm just easily impressed, ha). Even better, their taste! It wasn't but three days later that I found myself at Trader Joe's picking up prosciutto to make my own batch of the appetizer. The original recipe calls for a piece of arugula to be wrapped in as well, but I liked Paige's version so much I decided to omit. 

Prosciutto Wrapped Pears with Blue Cheese
adapted from Real Simple

-2 pears (Bosc or Bartlett), cut into 8 wedges
-3 oz. blue cheese, cut into small pieces
-6 oz. thinly sliced prosciutto, cut in half lengthwise

1. Place a small piece of blue cheese on the pear.
2. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around the pear to secure the blue cheese.
