From the Test Kitchen

In this recipe, quick-cooking fresh wonton noodles elevate lo mein: a Chinese-American dish of noodles, meat and vegetables. They're perfect for taking on our sweet and savory sauce, accented by the nuttiness of sesame oil. For vibrant flavor and texture, we're tossing the noodles with a medley of vegetables, including carrots, bok choy and enoki mushrooms—a unique variety with long, thin stems and tiny caps.
