I am a sucker for any kind of stir-fry that incorporates noodles, whether that be Udon noodles, ramen or Lo mein. I will eat every single noodle on my plate. The best part of these recipes is the time it takes to make and the result. The best way to eat these noodles is by slurping as loud as you can.

In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, light brown sugar, sesame oil, and lime juice.
In a large pot of boiling water, cook noodles according to package instructions and strain the noodles.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the peppers, garlic, and mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 5-7 minutes. Stir in the sauce and the noodles, tossing to combine.
Lo Mein: I love using lo mein for this although you could use chow mein, rice noodles or even ramen noodles.
Sesame oil: You can buy sesame oil in the ethnic food section of your grocery store.
Soy Sauce: I used light soy sauce instead of dark soy sauce.
Garlic: You can smash the garlic or mince it.

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.
I love using my Caraway pots, pans and baking sheets for best quality.
