Recipe by Manda

Another version of a chicken lo mein-type dish, but with lots more veggies! The sauce is very tasty, and this dish is great eaten hot or cold. I love to take the leftovers to work with me for a healthy, filling lunch. Add any of your favorite veggies; I just listed some of the ones that I used

I really liked this, as did the rest of my "family unit", but I was really winging it,all the way along.The instructions were kind of vague,so I prepared it to my tastes.I bought fresh angel hair pasta, reduced the garlic to 2 cloves, and, instead of par-boiling the vegetables I chose-(onion,green pepper,celery,baby corn,(frozen)cabbage,bamboo shoots,frozen pea pods, and some shitake mushrooms)I cooked it in some of the peanut oil,for a couple minutes. The sauce seemed too vineger-ish, so I added more sesame oil...it was wonderful! Even my daughter, known as "The-Girl-Who-Hates-Vegetables, said how tasty it was and it had a roasted flavor. Hubby liked it, too. He LOVES sesame seeds on anything. Rhanks, I came across this by accident, and I'm sure glad I did!And I'm sure I'll make it again sometime in 2003. Happy Holidays!
