I would make this dish without the pears. When I fixed this for my friends the pear was hard and the crust was gooey...but the sausage and spices were very tasty. I would most likley leave the pear out.

The only change I made to this recipe is instead of using chopped pecans I ground mine up. This is an amazing quiche, I made it to bring to my boyfriends sister and she loves it so much she requests it everytime we stop by.
