Unstuffed Bell Pepper Casserole

1 1/2 bellpeppers ( I had 2 medium-sized ones) chopped fine
1 box of Minute Maid rice (14 oz.) Cook as directed
1 bag Colby-jack cheese (or whatever cheddar you want)
1 can Spaghetti sauce (28 oz.)
2 Vidalia onions (medium size) chopped fine
1 lb. ground beef
onion powder (about 2 tsp. I don't measure, so I am not sure, lol)
garlic powder (about 2 tsp.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook the ground beef with the onions and bellpeppers and seasonings. Drain.
Make the rice ( I do this while the meat is cooking)
In a large mixing bowl add the meat mixture with the rice. Add the spaghetti sauce and mix well.
Put in a 13x9x2 pan (the long rectangle kind) and add the cheese to the top. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. I sprinkle parsley on top for decoration.
