The secret to this Chinese favorite is not to let the noodles sit in the sauce very long — toss them together a few seconds before serving. COOKS NOTES: Think about adding julienned carrots and cucumber. You may also like to add a bit more vinegar, sesame oil,garlic and soy sauce for tang! Great leftovers too!!

Wonderful and tasty, I think I'll be serving this one again and again! Followed as written this is a great dish; everyone at my house was a member of the 'clean plate club'! Thanks for sharing, Paula G!

Great! I omitted the red pepper flakes so my little one would eat it and added some chopped peanuts. Made for ZWT 9

Really tasty and easy to make. We enjoyed this with a SE Asian themed meal for ZWT #9.
