Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add squash and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from water and rinse to cool.
Slice off top 1/2" of squashes. Scoop out seeds, and chop any flesh into small pieces and add it to the pan with the sauteed vegetables. Add 1/4 cup broth and saute until it has been absorbed. Sprinkle with a little sugar and the curry powder. Cook 1-2 minutes longer to mellow the curry.
Add the rice and the rest of the broth. Cook until rice is heated.
Oil the inside of a deep sided pan and place the squash in it. Spoon rice mixture into hollow. Top with a little tomato sauce and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until squash is cooked through.
