Sorry Rob, "Left over" may have been a bad choice of word. What I meant was, like when we make riso cantonese (known in english as "fried rice"), we cook the rice beforehand, sometimes the day before so the rice is completely cooled and somewhat on the dry side. This is done because if you use a hot rice for sautè (sofriggere) it tends to get too soggy (bagnato). That is why I asked if this procedure is applicable in this recipe... no we don't usually have any cooked rice left over, except in some cases rice salad!!
And yes... pear and pecorino is one of our favourite combinations!!
