Use pre-cooked rice or cook your own. If cooking your own, prepare 2 cups uncooked rice with butter and salt. Cook according to package instructions and set to the side.
Start to brown the 2lbs of ground pork with chili seasoning in a skillet over medium heat. As the ground pork is browning add diced onion, peppers, 1/2 Tablespoon of minced garlic, 1/2 Tablespoon of salt, 2 teaspoons of black pepper, and 1/2 Tablespoon of dried oregano to the meat. Cook until meat is completely brown, approximately 10 minutes. Drain any excess grease.
Combine the meat and veggie mixture with prepared rice and add 1 1/2 cups of spaghetti sauce. Mix well. Dump the mixture into a 9x13 casserole dish and press with a rubber spatula.
Top with 2 cups of shredded cheese (mozzarella or cheddar is best) and bake at 350 F for 30 minutes until warmed through and cheese is bubbling.
Top with fresh parsley for added color and freshness just before serving. Cut and serve hot.
I used ground pork which did not come spiced. You could also use Italian seasoned pork or sausage. If you use a flavored meat, omit the salt, pepper, and oregano from the recipe but keep the Chili seasoning.
