thank you sweetie. i may make the same thing for dinner tonight. i only make a 1/2 lb pasta for 4 people so i may use the other 1/2 lb and make the same thing for dinner tonight because the family enjoyed it so much last night. the sauce is 1/2 and 1/2, butter, grated romano and parmesan cheese and parsley. i also have french bread for the garlic bread tonight. or i may just make something completely different but still have the garlic bread as a side. LOL one never knows what i will come up with.

msmofet, I have not heard of sub-gum chicken chow mein. Maybe you can explain or have a picture to show. Cooking Chinese is simple. All the ones that I cook are simple, fast and easy, especially good for busy people like myself. Feel free to ask. I'll try my best to help.

Cheers,
shalinee

msmofet, thanks for the lovely pictures. They look awesome. By the way, chow mein means fried noodles. But definitely this dish will go great with rice or noodles.

It does look good. You did a good job. I will give a try one of these days and let you know. A lot of times food in Chinese restaurants taste good because of the msg added which makes you thirsty after that. I don't use msg at home and the food still comes out well. Sometimes just have to play around with a balance of sugar and salt.
