Easter Dinner

What are you making for Easter dinner?  For the first time I want to make
an Easter dinner without meat so that the whole family eats the same thing,
but I need some good ideas for the main dish.  Please help.

A few days ago I downloaded ten chili recipes from the Vegetarian Times web
site (www.vegetariantimes.com) and made this one which my family enjoyed
over spaghetti:

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   1      tablespoon    balsamic vinegar
   1      large         yellow onion -- diced
   1      each          red bell pepper -- seeded and diced
   1      large stalk   celery -- chopped
   2      cloves        garlic -- minced
   2      each          poblano peppers -- roasted
  28      ounces        stewed tomatoes
  15      ounces        red kidney beans or black beans -- drained
   1      cup           water
   2      tablespoons   tomato paste
   1      tablespoon    chili powder
   2      teaspoons     dried oregano
   5 1/2  teaspoons     ground cumin
     1/2  teaspoon      salt

Heat balsamic vinegar in large saucepan. Add onion, bell pepper, celery and
garlic; saute until vegetables are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in
poblanos, stewed tomatoes, beans, water, tomato paste and seasonings. Cook
uncovered over low heat, stirring occasionally, 25 to 30 minutes. Set aside
5 to 10 minutes before serving. 
Ladle chili into bowls and serve with warm cornbread if desired. Makes 4 to
6 servings.
Helpful Hint: To roast a pepper, trim, wash, seed and flatten pepper onto a
baking sheet or piece of aluminum foil. Place under broiler until pepper is
completely charred. Place blackened pepper in a small paper bag, seal and
set aside 15 minutes. Remove from bag. Peel off charred skin with fingers.
Note: If poblanos are not available, substitute Anaheim or New Mexico green
chilies. In a real pinch, canned green chilies can be used, but do not
substitute fresh green bell pepper.
Variation: This richly flavored chili is excellent served over macaroni or
