Vegetable Lo Mein

I love lo mein at the local buffet but I'm not real fond of the vegetable to noodle ratio that they have.  I do love my vegetables.  Since I am not able to find the correct type of noodle for this dish, I compromised with ramen noodles.  It was delicious and loaded with veggies.

    I’m very glad that you are enjoying the site Danuta. Some would say I have a very odd sense of taste, but I am all about thoroughly enjoying what I eat. Please let me know how your noodles come out, I don’t have the patience to make home made noodles. lol
