Another Mystery Squash Needs ID'd

Hi...

We planted saved seeds from a Supermarket Spaghetti Squash near where I found this one + Watermelon, yellow and butternut in another part of the garden. At first I thought this might be a stray watermelon,it was green...but it never got any bigger :)

Maybe 6" long x 4-1/2" wide:

Stray seed?

And what's it good for? Pie? Or is it too mature?

I saved a few seeds to grow out next year, and roasted the rest...not bad.

We got 3 good Spag plants which the SVBs mangled; only 2 small 8"ers ;left...no butternuts or watermelons, lots of blooms on the yellows but no fruit.

Thanks, Don
