Notes

  • Noodle: Use regular spaghetti noodles, traditional lo mein noodles or gluten free noodles!
  • Soy Sauce or Coconut Aminos: either work well in the sauce! Use coconut aminos if you are gluten-free!
  • Other Veggies: bok choy, water chestnuts or even spinach would also be great additions to this dish!
  • Storage Tips: This makes great leftovers! Simply store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. ¬†When reheating feel free to add an extra splash or two of soy sauce (or coconut aminos) as the pasta will soak up some of the sauce!
