I made this for years using expensive Chinese Chow Mein noodles. $4 for 6 oz seemed a bit steep. Especially because I make it every other week. I decided to use thin spaghetti one night and never looked back. 🤣 $1 for 16 oz? Yes, please! So while it might not be 100% authentic, it is 100% delicious! ❤️🥢🥡 I love my veggies, so I usually add in a few more that Panda doesn’t use. 😋
