Vegetable Lo Mein
Pasta is always a hit with kids and lo mein is no different. Teaching children to eat with chopsticks is great fun and opens the door to discussion of other cultures. Although many people believe Marco Polo discovered pasta in China and took it home to Italy, both cultures had their own form of pasta long before Polo’s worldwide adventures. In Italian, pasta means “paste” in reference to the method of creating dough from flour, eggs. If you want to make this dish a main course by adding a protein try tofu or chicken. This dish is an excellent choice for the lunch box because it can be eaten warm or at room temperature and extra marinating will only make the noodles more flavorful.
