    This is my first post in here. I did not realize DIS had a cooking board until I went looking for a receipe.

    My daughter's friend is sleeping over night. Her familiy are vegetarians. I'm trying to think of a receipe that I can also get my kids to eat without complaints.

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Pasta is always a big hit and you can add chicken nuggets or fingers on the side for those who want them. If she eats dairy products you can always do mac n cheese as most kids love that as well.

    I was going to say mac n cheese as well:goodvibes or cheese pie (basically mash potato and cheese but browned like a shepherds pie) again you can add a protein on the side. or how about a veggie chilli/fajitas? Or a veggie lasagne if you ahve time to make it - instead of meat bolognaise sub fresh tomatoes and spinach with a swirl of pesto - yummy! (Keep the regular cheese sauce)

    Thanks!

    I ended up doing a pasta casserole type dish. I figured it would be easy for my kids to (quietly!) pick out/or around the pieces they did not like (ie, red peppers & mushrooms).
