Quick Pork Lo Mein Recipe

Quick Pork Lo Mein Recipe

This colorful main dish with crispy snow peas and baby carrots is a favorite with Denise DuBois of Coral Springs, Florida. “It's quick, healthy and the variety is endless,” she notes. “I sometimes use chicken, mushrooms, bean sprouts and cashews!” TIP: Denise sometimes serves her Lo Mein over rice or spaghetti.
