Ground Beef Lo Mein Recipe

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.
