These were great! Definitely double the sauce. I also used dried wide noodles.
Long Life Noodles
Any type of noodle—thin chow mein noodles to broad rice noodles to the thicker Shanghai wheat noodles—is a must at Chinese New Year's. However, long noodles represent a long unbroken life (so cutting them into shorter strands would symbolically shorten your life). Pull out your largest skillet or wok because this Asian recipe creates a full pan.
