If you can’t find lo mein noodles, substitute Japanese udon noodles or soba (buckwheat) noodles…or, in a pinch, thin spaghetti.
Swap in one or more of your favorite veggies in this dish. Thin green beans, shredded carrots or bean sprouts would work well. If using fresh bean sprouts rather than canned ones, be sure to cook them thoroughly until crisp.
