Ingredients

2
medium sweet potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled and cut lengthwise into wedges
2
firm red Bartlett pears, cut into wedges
2
tablespoons
olive oil
8
sprigs fresh thyme
kosher salt and black pepper
1
piece pork tenderloin (1 1/4 pounds)
1/4
pound
thinly sliced prosciutto
1
tablespoon
honey

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425º F. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the sweet potatoes, pears, oil, thyme, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Roast for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, wrap the pork in the prosciutto, slightly overlapping the slices to cover the pork completely.
  3. Push the vegetables to the edges of the baking sheet, place the pork in the center, and drizzle the pork with the honey. Roast until the pork is cooked through and the sweet potatoes and pears are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Let the pork rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with the sweet potatoes and pears.
