Lo Mein

Tonight we had lo mein for dinner. Darren and I cooked it together. We have been making lo mein for a couple of years now, and we have finally worked out a recipe that we both really like.

You will need:
4 slices of thick bacon
3-4 carrots, peeled and sliced
~10 oz. mushrooms, sliced
1 lb. spaghetti or fettuccine
1 c. cold water
1 t. (heaping) chicken bouillon
1 T. cornstarch
1 T. sriracha chile-garlic sauce (or less, we like things spicy!)
3 T. soy sauce
1 T. sesame oil
salt and pepper to taste

Start by cutting the bacon into bite-sized pieces. Cook the bacon over medium heat in a large skillet or wok until done.
Add the mushrooms and carrots, and cook until just tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
While the bacon and vegetables are cooking, boil the package of noodles according to the package directions, drain, and set aside.
Mix the water, bouillon, cornstarch, chile-garlic sauce, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a small sauce pan. Whisk together and bring to a boil. Stir while boiling 1-2 minutes until sauce begins to thicken.
Add the pasta to the skillet/wok and toss to mix.
Pour the sauce over the pasta-vegetable mixture and stir to coat. Allow to stand a few minutes before eating.
