Brown meat with peppers and garlic in large skillet, drain. Stir in rice, spaghetti sauce, and 3/4 cup of cheese.
Spoon into 2 qt. casserole; top with remaining cheese.
Bake 25 minutes.
*Amy's notes: I always double and put it in a 9x13.
6/7/10 ~ I am in love! I got, "Good, it was great!" from DS1 and "It was so great!" from DS2. Dh had to work late, so he hasn't tried it yet. So far, though, it's a winner with the rest of us! I subbed ground turkey, Fiesta Blend cheese, brown rice, and a garlic pepper spice blend (for the garlic cloves). All substitutions were a success. I did, however, make mine in a 9x13 rather than my 2 qt dish, just so that the cheese would be more evenly distributed. I will make this one again and again. It's taking everything I have not to go in there and eat dh's helpings too, lol. Seriously, though, this is a wonderfully easy and tasty dish. Definitely a keeper.
