You may know this classic Chinese pasta dish by its common Cantonese name, Lo Mein. It’s a favorite luncheon dish, often served at the end of a meal of dim sum. It’s very simple and can be served as is or with shredded vegetables and meat. Use fresh Chinese noodles (called lo mein in Chinese markets) or fresh or dried spaghetti. Leftover stir-fried noodles make a wonderful cold salad.
