It happened once again, I almost didn't make it to this Presto Pasta Night by Ruth Daniels of Once Upon A Feast. Why am I always beating the deadline huh? I think I really need to make some improvements on my blog hopping activity. Lucky me this time! I still had a day to prepare for my initial entry. This is another fun and exciting activities of food bloggers around. Each week, all pasta lovers are encouraged to submit a pasta dish of their own and share it with the rest of the blogging community. Ruth makes a wrap up on fridays so everyone can have something to relish on weekends. Being a big fan of Pasta, I simply can't pass on this one. By the way, Pasta here means all types of NOODLES. After checking what ingredients I've got in our pantry, I've decided to make this simple, popular Filipino-Chinese noodle dish called "Stir-fried Chow Mein Noodles". It is more commonly known in the Philippines as Pancit Canton.
