  • Place squash halves, cut-sides down, in the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes.

  • While squash is baking, heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat; stir in onion and bell pepper. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in beans, tomatoes, and frozen corn.

  • Remove squash from the oven. Carefully turn each half over, fill with bean and veggie mixture, and top with shredded cheese.

  • Return to the oven and bake until cheese is bubbling and squash is tender, about 20 more minutes.
