    Easy and very tasty!

    Lo Mein doesn't have a peanut sauce. Pad Thai does and this recipe is neither. It's not a bad recipe but it's certainly not Lo Mein.

    I made this recipe this week but used fresh peppers and onions. You can also used cooked chicken and just saute it in the dressing for a couple of minutes; the flavor does come through. A little more soy sauce adds more flavor. Definitely a winner in our house!
