Can you help me identify this? It looks very suspicious. Is it a weed? Invasive plant? How did it get in my garden?

Those are mushrooms! This one belongs to the Clathrus genus.

They are useless to humans, and can have a nasty odor. They do break down decaying material quite quickly, which provides nutrients to your soil.

I would advise leaving it to continue on. They are harmless, and do a good bit for your garden soil.

Should you still wish to remove them, this article will help:
