Pear Dessert

I had a very ripe pear that I didn't want to waste, so I threw it in a saute pan with some butter. Can you ever go wrong with fruit, butter, and sugar?
So so so good.
(sorry no picture)

4 red pears diced w/ skin on (Any kind would do, but the red gave it some nice color)
3 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp + 1 tsp brown sugar
1+ Tbsp chopped fresh mint*

*Did you know you can freeze your herbs in a ziplock and pull them out, good as new, for use in the winter? If you do that, just break them up into pieces while they're still frozen.

Melt butter in any kind of large skillet. Add pears and saute until they start to break down. Sprinkle on salt, br sugar, and mint; stir. Serve warm or cold. Would also go well with vanilla ice cream or mascarpone cheese.
