Meat the Parents

Sorry for the pun. I couldn't contain myself.

I am searching for suggestions. I am driving to Illinois this Friday to meet my boyfriend's mother. He and I are both vegetarian and his mother is lactose intolerant. We are going to cook a full meal for his parents and two siblings. I'm thinking perhaps a tofu-stuffed manicotti with roasted potatoes and some sort of fruit salad. Does anyone have recipes or suggestions about this? My last attempt at tofu-stuffed manicotti failed miserably when my pan melted and my oven caught on fire.

Any suggestions about the tofu/noodles would be greatly appreciated.
