Lo Mein Noodles

Lo Mein Noodles

These Lo Mein Noodles are a delicious, quick and easy side. Try to source out fresh lo mein noodles. Chinese noodles have a wonderful chewy texture that is addicting and completely different from traditional pasta. I serve this side hot, warm and cold. The noodles are amazing as a pasta salad.
