1. preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with vegetable cooking spray

2. heat 4 tsp of the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and squash and saute 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic and 1 Tbsp of the ginger and saute an additional minute. Add water and salt, bring to a boil over high heat, then lower heat and simmer, partially covered, 15 to 20 minutes, until the squash is easily pierced with a fork.

3. while squash is cooking, mix pears with cinnamon, remaining 2 tsp oil and remaining 1 tbsp ginger. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake 20 - 25 minutes, until tender. Set aside.

4. Save 12 pear slices for garnish; add the remaining slices to the squash. Puree using a blender, food processor, or immersion blender. Keep warm in a pot over low heat.

5. microwave chocolate in a small bowl on high for 1 minute. Stir, and heat 30-60 seconds more if not fully melted. Stir in half the cream, adding more if necessary until the chocolate reaches a pouring consistency.

6. To serve, ladle hot soup into 6 bowls, lay 2 pear slices on top of each, and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
