In the meantime, grate 2 carrots, add with 1/2 cup red lentils to 3 cups boiling water, simmer for about 15 minutes, then add 1 cup bulgar wheat, lower heat and let simmer, covered, for about 10 minutes, remove heat and let stand, covered for another 10 or 15 minutes.

Add the bulgar wheat to the zucchini, stir together, add about 8 ounces fat-free cheddar cheese if you like it.

Stuff into the zucchini shells, mound up a bit. Top with the sauce. Place in a baking dish and bake in a 350 degrees F oven for about 45 minutes or microwave for about 20 minutes, covered with wax paper.
