Crab Lo Mein

"I came up with this one night when I had some leftover spaghetti that I needed to use up," writes Laura Mryyan from Topeka, Kansas. TIP: "When stirring up the sauce, I like to use half soy sauce and half oyster sauce for a richer, more developed flavor,"Laura notes.

    This is one of the best lo mein recipes I have found. I have done this recipe substituting shrimp or chicken. I usually add some julienne carrots and water chestnuts.
