Generously grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt margarine in an extra-large skillet over medium heat. Saute peppers, onion, celery and carrots until tender but not mushy, about 10 minutes. Stir in spinach until wilted. Place vegetable mixture in a large bowl to cool. Add eggs, matzo meal, salt, pepper and garlic powder to vegetables. Stir until just combined. Spoon mixture into prepared baking dish and cover. Bake 35 minutes or until firm. Remove cover and bake 10 more minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 10 minutes before cutting.
