Quick and Easy Lo mein

Quick and Easy Lo Mein

Simple. Delicious. Quick to prep. Lo mein is a Chinese noodle dish that mixes and tosses noodles with ingredients and sauce versus a chow mein that stir fries egg noodles first. Yakisoba noodles are Japanese noodles (essentially wheat flour and water) but they work well for this single serve dish because they are easy to find and prepare. Adapted recipe from Damn Delicious.
