This is a great quick midweek meal. Try using chickpeas instead of the kidney beans for a variation on this recipe.

  3. Stir spring onions, corn, kidney beans and chilli flakes into the tomato mixture. Heat in the microwave for 3 minutes, or until heated through.
  4. Spoon hot tomato mixture evenly into capsicum halves and cover with cling wrap. Poke a few holes in the cling wrap to vent steam and heat in the microwave 4 minutes. Remove cling wrap, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese and allow to stand 1 to 2 minutes before serving.
