Preheat oven to 350 degrees, flip carnival squash over on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper face down (the bottom should be up facing you). Place in the oven and bake for 45-55 minutes or until the squash is tender but not mushy. Take out and allow to cool to room temperature.

See recipes for cranberry sauce and poached pear. When ready to plate place the squash back in the over for 10 minutes to heat up. Then add the aioli on the bottom of the squash, add the pears, avocados, and cranberry sauce.
