    1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Lightly grease a 20cm square casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.
    2. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in capsicum, garlic and green onions; cook until the capsicum softens, about 3 minutes. Pour in tomato pasta sauce and simmer 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    3. Mix together fontina and provolone in a bowl. Spread a thin layer of sauce over the bottom of the prepared dish. Arrange 1/3 of the polenta slices in the dish, top with 1/3 the fontina and provolone mixture. Spread a thin layer of sauce over cheese. Repeat layers twice. Top casserole with Parmesan cheese.
    4. Bake in preheated oven until cheese is bubbly and golden brown, about 25 minutes.
