Family Dinner with Son's Date

Our son wants us to meet the young lady he's dating (mentioned several times) and both of them are nervous (his words).

We invited them for a casual dinner. That's how my family does things. We make food. We meet. We eat. We laugh (or cry...I hope not)...and just have a relaxed time.

We know he adores her, she's vegetarian and very sweet.

Menu thus far-
Lasagna with spinach and mushrooms.
Caesar salad
Hot bread with compound garlic/parmesan butter or dipping oil
Fruit or ice cream/sorbet for dessert.

Still thinking about what else to serve. It's tomorrow, so it has to be easy.

Any suggestions?
I am all ears.
