It could be Lo Mein or anything. They're much the same, depending on the veggies. (Mu Go Guy Pan, etc.)

The main ingredients are easy and at teh grocery store available in the Ethnic section.

(You can buy Lo Mein noodles at the grocery store in the Ethnic isle for Chinese foods.)

The freezer section has pre-packaged, frozen Chinese veggies that you stir-fry (called Stir-Fry Chinese veggies)...

Of course, get Soy Sauce too (preferrably the salt-free kind).....

To make: If you don't have a Wok, pan-fry in peanut oil or virgin olive oil, the fozen veggies (there are a lot of choices of those veggie packages, i.e. chicken and veggies, beef and veggies, etc.) and do not over cook. It's basically a "saute" of the veggies.

Boil the Lo Mein noodles lightly (or spaghetti pasta, which Angel Hair pasta would be best of the two pastas) and when done, rinse in cold water, strain, put in bowl or spoon the helping on plate(s) and top with stir-fried veggies, adding Soy Sauce as desired, last.

Yes, it is Chinese food (not authentic but Americanized but tasty all the same) and also called Lo Mein in some restaurants, or buffets, depending.

The person below offered a link, so here is a:

Noncomplicated, simplified way of cooking this:
You cook the meat, vegetables, and noodles all separately. First the meat and then vegetables. People use a little sugar along with soy sauce. Then combine them all with the noodles, using soy sauce on the noodles - too much would be overkill so it's not really necessary for the vegetables. For the meat sauce would be okay so the flavor can soak into the meat.

To stir fry:

This sounds like Chow Mein to me.

Follow this link to a recipe for vegetarin Chow Mein. You can also add meat to this dish if you aren't vegetarian, chicken is very good.
