The ingredient list show:

3 cups 1 inch peeled pieces of pumpkin (1lb)

So you essentially need 1lb of kabocha.

The recipe calls for kabocha and pumpkin. The ingredients list only shows pumpkin.

Kabocha squashes come in many sizes..you might want to get one on the small size. You could probably substitute another winter squash like butternut, but Kabocha is uniquely "meaty" . It is however, often hard to find.
