Fabulous! I've made this twice now. I didn't use the cheese, and on the second go-round added a cup of cooked bulgur for some whole-grain fiber, and doubled the sauce. It didn't change the flavor at all, but added a little more nutrition. We were kind of awkward with the lettuce leaves (used romaine), but it was so worth it! This is really delicious. Thanks for posting!
