Easy Lo Mein

You guys, I have literally never ordered these at a restaurant! I am definitely more of a fried rice type of girl but we were at a Hibachi restaurant a few weeks ago and we got a free special side of some lo mein noodles and wow wow wow, I have been missing out! I have been craving them ever since! I never knew how incredibly easy they were and you probably already have all of the ingredients in your pantry!! My favorite type of recipe!!

I used ground pork, broccoli, red peppers and lots of scallions and OMG it was perfect! Literally! However, you can put it literally anything your heart desires! Carrot, mushrooms, spring peas, spinach, green beans, chicken, shrimp! The world is truly your oyster and I believe it would be perfect anyway you choose!

Final note about the easy lo mein! You can use ramen noodles or egg noodles but I just used normal spaghetti noodles and they were delicious! Finally, the sauce comes together with 4 ingredients and coats each noodle beautifully! Can’t wait for you to try it!
