This is a family favorite that everyone demands at the holidays.
The nice thing about this recipe is that I can roast the potatoes and pears earlier in the day and then reheat them before dinner, adding the finishing touches. It saves space in the oven which is always challenging whenever we do a big family dinner.
The sweet potatoes and pears go together so well and are my healthier take on the sweet potato and marshmallow casserole we used to have at my grandmother's house when I was a kid. The pecans add a nice crunch as well as another dimension of flavor.
