I had some left over rice noodles, from PHO that I made last night, and I knew I wanted to make some chow mein. This recipe didn’t disappoint and I know it will make heavy rotation.
My husband and 2 little ladies LOVED it. Anything with “slurp noodles” is their favorite. This recipe is a great way to add some veggies in your families diet, or sneak in some kids case. This is great paired with some egg rolls or wontons. Yum! Enjoy!!
