I absolutely love lo mein and am craving it right now because I am low-carbing, so I thought I'd give this a whirl. I made a few modifications and the flavor was spot on! I subbed mirin (japanese rice wine) for the red wine (personal preference), omitted all the veggies except green onions (again, personal preference) added a splash of rice wine vinegar; I upped the red pepper flakes to 1 1/2 tsp. (I like spicy) and I used Dreamfield's Low Carb pasta in place of the fettuccine as mentioned in the directions. I did have one question: you did not mention how much oil or what kind of oil to use in the pan; I used 2 tbsp of canola oil. The flavors melded together nicely and this satisfied my lo mein cravings without sabotaging my diet efforts :) Thanks for posting!!
