One of my fellow water aerobic pals told me about this dessert she discovered which could be made in one pan, and once cooked it tasted wonderful. Hubby loves pears, so I decided to try it. However I marinated the pears in port and a squeeze of lemon the night before. Reducing the port over heat and drizzling it on the tart before serving.

My little sister is in town for a month, graduation party, beach combing and a Long Island winery tour, so this is a quick one!
