Chinese Fried Noodles

For those of you that missed it, these Chinese Fried Noodles are the second half of my ‘same ingredients, two different meals” post.  Pork Egg Rolls were the first half and by adding only a few extra ingredients, I was able to make whole another meal.  I even froze the leftover egg roll mixture and made this recipe a week later.  Totally time and cost efficient.  I love it.  If you don’t want to make the Egg Roll recipe just so you can make these fried noodles, don’t worry, I’ve listed the ingredients individually so you can make just these delicious Chinese Fried Noodles.  I’m not sure why you would do that though because the egg rolls are awesome as well!
