    This was really delicious, easy and quick to prepare. Don't forget that last little spritz of sesame seed oil. It is THE final touch! After adding the noodles, I added 1/4 beef broth, and a splash of oyster sauce for added flavor.

    I saw the episode where Rachael made this. I'm disappointed to see this written recipe doesn't include the sauce she used on the show. That sauce had stock, soy sauce, oyster sauce and now I can't remember what else. Was looking for something more than just soy sauce for this.

    Hmmm. I liked this dish, only I didn't find it overly flavorful, and that was even with reducing the lo mein noodles to 1/2 pound but keeping everything else the same. I only used 1 tsp sesame oil as it is very strong, so perhaps that is where my flavor problem stems from. I will try again, but may add additional garlic or maybe some oyster or fish sauce?

    yummy yummy! i love rachel ray! just make sure that you have a large enough pan so that you can mix the pasta in, I dont have a wok and had trouble mixing all the spaghetti in. This definately makes more that four servings though! My family of 5 had plenty of leftover. I wish I would had the bean sprouts in there. We had them, but they went bad before I could use them. :( but very yummy none the less!
