Rice with Pears and Gorgonzola

I generally use a Williams pear or an Abate Fetel pear, because of their particular perfume and sweetness, but you can try with any pear you like, as long as it's mature.

I've chosen a spicy Gorgonzola cheese to make the sauce, but you can use a creamy one if you prefer a lighter flavor.
