Our home economists modified Penny Auclair's recipe to use up extra cooked ground beef. “I tried this when I was going to school full-time and wanted something quick, foolproof and delicious,” writes the Amesbury, Massachusetts cook. “My family loves it.” TIP: “For a change, use chicken breasts and chicken gravy instead of ground beef and beef gravy,” Penny recommends.

"We thought this was pretty good! I did add extra soy sauce and will probably add a little ginger next time. Not sure I'd really call it Lo Mein, but it hit the spot for dinner last night!"

"I served this tonight with fried rice and egg rolls. I was very happy I added the rice and egg rolls because the low mein went uneaten."

"This was a simple dish to make. It just needs a little more salt or soy sauce."
