For a recipe request for bulgar recipes. This looks amazing, and I can't wait to try it. Originally from "Taste Without Waist; The Service League of Hickory NC, Inc.", posted by Kim Reese.

I liked it! At first I thought it was too mild to rate five stars, but after the first few bites I realized I really enjoyed it. I particularly liked the difference in textures -- the chewiness of the bulgur, the softness of the vegetables, and the creaminess of the cheese were great together. I too used a combination of eggs and egg whites, and substituted fat-free ricotta for the fat-free cottage cheese (didn't have any on hand, and needed to use up my ricotta). I also had to substitute mozzarella for cheddar; next time I'll use a good, sharp cheese and that'll make it even better. Thanks for posting this!

A big ingredients list but actually quite easy to make and well worth the effort. I used eggs instead of egg beaters and used regular cheeses as I am not worried about calories. Worth making!
