Lo Mein Noodles

Rated as 3.6 out of 5 Stars

"From Phoenix, Arizona, Kay Bergeron reports, 'One of the things my husband and I share is a love of Oriental food. At the end of the week, I go through the fridge, looking for leftover vegetables and meats to use in my 'leftovers chow mein'. If I have leftover spaghetti noodles, I use them to make these stir-fried noodles. Otherwise, I just cook up a fresh pot."

I used fresh noodles,located near the eggroll wrappers, reduced five spice to 1/2 tsp. and added more veggies... bok choy, carrots, zucc and yellow squash.

this was very dry and had a strange flavor to it. my dh did not care for the anise in the 5 spice powder. I think next time I will find a teryaki garlic sauce.

This lo mein tastes like the real thing! It must be the five spice that gives it such authentic flavor. I cleaned out the fridge and added more veggies like carrots and peppers. Delicious!!!!!

This got mixed reviews at my house. Four of us here. My son and I thought it was "ok", wife strongly disliked it (ate PB&J instead) and my daughter LOVED it. My wife didnt like the anise I think...

I didn't have everything, but it was good anyway. I need to get 5-spice powder and try it again.

very good recipe...we couldn't find the five spice so we just add some other seasonings. We will be using this recipe again!

Did not like the flavor of the Chinese 5 spice at all!
