 What would you serve if you have invited a group of people for dinner, and one is a vegetarian?

I've made this a few times in casserole form and it is really good.

We often eat meatless meals, so that wouldn't be a problem.  I could do a pasta dish we like with mushrooms, pinto beans, onions, herbs and olive oil, add a salad and some garlic bread.  I could also do cheese ravioli with tomatoes onions and black olive, along with bread and salad.  There are many good vegetarian dishes out there that are okay for meat eaters.  If I was worried about some people missing meat, I could also have a meat entree available.  I worked at a 7th Day Adventist hospital for a time and they also had two entress, meat and vegetarian.

Eggplant Parmesan with a side of linguine. I would also include a side of meatballs as well.

I'd find out just how strict their diet is and if there's any meat that they will eat.  I don't mind having lots of veggie and alternate proteins on the table so if they are completely meat and dairy free I can find something that would compliment the rest of the meal.

The vegetarian that comes to our house regularly eats eggs and dairy, so maybe a frittata with plenty of veggies, and a tossed salad. 

Taco salad, and take hers out before we add the meat.

If we have a BBQ, I'll be sure to include deviled eggs along with the grilled veggies.

Why is only one person a vegetarian?

Veggie Lasagna with garlic bread.  Assuming they eat cheese.  Otherwise I can do a tofu and veggie stir fry over rice with stir fry green beans on the side.  The possibilities are endless!
