Easy Lo Mein

Seamless had become way too easy of a “cooking” tool over the past few months and frankly we just weren’t finding great takeout Asian food, so I decided to venture out of my Italian and American cooking style to attempt Asian at home.

I often stay away from cooking Asian food for a laundry list of reasons (too long to list here), but when I realized cooking Lo Mein was pretty much like making my favorite Italian pasta dishes I put the list away.

This dish takes 15 minutes and you can take some side cuts by getting your veggies already prepared.
