2 T olive oil
1/4 c unsalted butter
3 T minced garlic

1/2 T light brown sugar
1 T Maggi Seasoning
1/4 t freshly cracked black pepper
1/4 c grated Parmesan cheese

Cook the chow mein noodles according to the direction on the package. Drain the noodles, reserving a few tablespoons of the starchy water. In a wok or large sauté pan, melt the butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until aromatic but not browned, approx 1 – 2 min. Add the red pepper flakes, sugar and Maggi. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove the wok from the heat and quickly toss the noodles into the mix. Sprinkle in the black pepper and cheese. Toss the noodles ensuring that it is thoroughly covered. You may add a tablespoon of the pasta water as needed to loosen the pasta. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with the scallions and sesame seeds. Serve immediately. Serves approx 4.
