Speaking of spaghetti, I gave a recital last Sunday, and my pianist and I
arrived at the hall (out of breath, hungry, dusty, tired) early to warm up
and try the piano out - but there was another function going on, so we
couldn't use the piano and thus had an hour to waste. What to do? Luckily,
there was one of those hole-in-the-wall Chinese takeout places down the
street (turned out to be darn good), so I had:

House special lo mein (this an adaptation of Joyce Chen's recipe) I was
served half of this as a "half order" for $4.65, and it was too much, so I
suppose it makes enough for about 3 as a main course

Bring a lot of water to the boil. Dump noodles in; turn heat to low. Cook 3
minutes. Drain, toss with sesame oil and regular oil, set aside.

In 4 separate dishes, combine each of the meats with 1/2 t sherry and
1/2 t cornstarch.

Heat the 4 T oil in a skillet or wok to high. Add meats in this order,
stirring for a few seconds between each addition: pork, beef, chicken,
shrimp. As soon as you've added and tossed the shrimp, add the mushrooms
and cabbage. Cook until cabbage is wilted. Add scallions, soy, salt, and
MSG. Stir. Add the noodles and the bean sprouts, and stir-cook for 3 min.
Serve hot on a warm platter.
