Lo Mein Noodles & General Tao's Chicken

I am making General Tao's Chicken for supper and thought Noodles with Vegetables sounded good too so off I went to gather my ingredients!  Here is the link for General Tao's Chicken.

Ingredients for (Lo Mein Noodles)  Asian Noodles with Vegetables:

1 pound tagliarini, or other noodle style pasta
1 sweet onion
handful of fresh spinach leaves
1 large carrot julienned
3 T. sesame oil
3 T. soy sauce
1 T. balsamic vinegar
2 t. sugar
celery leaves for garnish, optional

Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions.

Thinly slice the onion.  Heat 1 T. of the sesame oil in a preheated wok.  Stir fry the onion and carrot for about 2 minutes.

Drain the pasta and add to the wok with the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar,and salt to taste.  Stir fry for 1 minute, then add the remaining sesame oil and the spinach leaves.  Serve hot garnished with celery leaves.

Yield 4 servings.

Note:  You can use whatever vegetables you like or have on hand.  This is also made with red onion and fresh mushrooms etc.

Yummy, I love Asian food, especially sticky sweet and sour. This looks so good I'm drooling over it. I do not know what the ingredients are though Diane, so I won't be making the General Tao's chicken. Best wishes Wendy

I will look in my Chinese cookbook to see if I can find ingredients. I used a bottled sauce. Thanks Wendy.
