Mystery Squash: What is this?

C9a726ef 95d0 4904 ba94 3d6cdff9c8e1  odd squash 2

My cousin's next door neighbor accidentally grew this squash from something that sneaked into her garden from the compost pile. Does anyone know what it is? I included a picture with some of the leaves, which smell awful, by the way.

I've never eaten (or smelled) one, but I have seen piles of enormous ones at markets in Italy.
