Bought what I thought was a zucchini plant but it has morphed into what looks like a dark green butternut squash. Do you ha e any idea what this might be?

This is a zucchini. This can just happen sometimes when they need just a little more phosphorus and potassium. Make sure that soil is fertile, and does not contain too much nitrogen, or any slow release fertilizers. These will cause this symptom.
