Easy 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," she notes.—Laura Mryyan, Topeka, Kansas
