    Are you using it as a side dish or a main course?

        I usually figure 3/4 pound per person (uncooked in the raw) for a main dish so I'd probably figure about six pounds (three small ones should hit that mark easily) and use only what I needed from the cooked squash. It stores beautifully under refrigeration if you have a bit left over.
        It's a favorite in our house throughout the fall/winter season.
        With respect to left overs, here's a few ideas you might enjoy reading about:
