Pancetta Crisps with Goat Cheese and Pear

I found this recipe about a month ago.  This is the second time I've made it and it has been a real crowd pleaser.  And it is super easy which is always a bonus!  My pancetta was thinner and cooked a little too much this time so be careful when it's in the oven.  I think the cooking time of 8-10 minutes is too long.

12 thin slices pancetta, about 1/3 lb
2 pears
2 oz crumbled goat cheese
Freshly cracked pepper

Arrange pancetta slices in a single layer on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet.

Bake at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes.  (Start checking at around 6-7 minutes)  Transfer to a paper towel lined wire rack using a spatula.  Let stand 10 minutes or until crisp.

Slice and core pear.  I slice mine a little thicker so they are sturdy.  Arrange on a serving platter.  Top evenly with pancetta and goat cheese.  Sprinkle with pepper and drizzle with honey just before serving.
