Can anyone ID this?

Since spring time this squash has sprung up out of a mulch pile we had in our driveway. We decided to keep it as an experiment. It's leaves look different to me than other squash I've grown and the one squash that is growing on it is a beautiful color. It's shape is reminiscent of a butter squash but it's pretty fat for a butternut. Any ideas?

Volunteers are usually mongrels. This one has some butternut heritage.
