Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Spread the pecans on a small baking sheet and cook until golden brown and toasted, about 10 minutes or so. Roughly chop and set aside.
Heat the oil up in a large pan over medium/high heat. Add in the celery and onions and cook until the begin to brown, about 4 minutes. Add in the pear and cook until it JUST begins to soften, about 2 minutes.
Add the mixture into a LARGE bowl, along with all the remaining ingredients (only 1/2 cup of the pecans) up to the bread. Mix well.
Add in the bread and very gently mix with your hands until well mixed and everything is evenly dispersed.
Add in the vegetable broth and very gently mix until the bread has absorbed the moisture. Transfer to a large casserole dish, lightly packing the bread down. Sprinkle with the remaining pecans.
Bake until the top is golden brown and crisp and the bread is tender, about 50-55 minutes.
Sprinkle with parsley and DEVOUR!
*I use my food processor to make it easy
**The amount you need will depend on your bread. Start with 1 1/3 and see how it feels. You want it very moist but not soupy! Some of the cubes should still hold their shape.
