Moo Shu Noodles

This is a great, quick weeknight kind of meal and it's tasty and healthy too! I've made this several times, but I hadn't made it in a long time until last week. I had forgotten how delicious it was! This is definitely going to make it into the rotation more often from now on. My hubby loved it as well as my 2-year old, so it's a winner! It's super easy and really flavorful.

Moo Shu Noodles

12 oz. fettuccine or linguine noodles
4 T. vegetable or olive oil, divided
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 lb. chicken, sliced thin
black pepper
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced on bias
2 T. fresh ginger, peeled and grated (or 1 T. ground/dried)
3-4 cloves garlic, finely minced or grated
1/2 lb. white button mushrooms, stems removed and caps sliced
1/4 c. hoisin sauce
3 T. soy sauce
1/2 head green cabbage, thinly sliced
1/2 c. pasta water, reserved

Cook pasta to al dente according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 c. cooking water, drain the rest of the pasta and reserve.

Heat a large skillet with 1 T. oil. Add the beaten eggs to the pan and scramble. When the eggs are done, reserve them in a boil.

Add 3 T. oil to the skillet and heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, add to the pan, and cook, stirring occasionally until done, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside (cover with foil or something to keep warm).

Add scallions, ginger, and garlic to the pan and cook until fragrant and scallions are tender, about 1 minute. Add mushrooms and stirfry until golden brown, about 4-5 minutes. Add cabbage to the pan and stirfry until tender, about 5 minutes.

Combine the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and reserved pasta water in a bowl. Add the eggs and chicken into the skillet, along with the sauce. Stirfry to fully heat through and then toss with the reserved pasta. Cook to heat through and serve.

I made this for dinner tonight and it was fantastic! Thanks for the great recipes! I have so many of yours bookmarked and can't wait to make them all. Thanks again!

Oh and I added snow peas to this because they were on sale so I had a bunch, and it turned out yummy!

I just happen to have hoisin sauce and cabbage in my fridge. I'll have to give this one a try. Thanks!
