Challenge Two, Round Three - Prosciutto Wrapped Pears

A couple years ago a friend hosted a fun little jewelry party and served up what quickly became my favorite appetizer. Ever. Except for all the others I love so much. These have been a hit every time I've served them and tend to disappear before I've even set the plate out. They're extremely easy and take almost seconds to assemble!

Proscuitto Wrapped Pears
2-3 ripe Bartlett pears
Light Garlic and Herb Boursin Cheese
1/2 lb thinly sliced prosciutto (best from deli counter, but packaged will work)
1/2 can lemon-lime soda, in bowl

Slice pears and soak 1-2 minutes in lemon-lime soda to prevent discoloring. Pat dry and spread with Boursin cheese. Top with an arugula leaf, and wrap with one slice prosciutto.

No, really, that's it!
