Is the Noodle Dish Italian or Chinese?

Today is National Noodle Day. While everyone is familiar with noodles and their many different forms from fettuccini to soba, I want to know how well you know classic noodle dishes.

Specifically can you identify the difference between an Italian pasta dish and a Chinese noodle dish? I'll describe the dishes and you tell me if it's Italian or Chinese. Ready, go!


Is the Noodle Dish Italian or Chinese?

This noodle dish usually includes pieces of meat, vegetables, water chestnuts, and bamboo shoots. Each of the ingredients is fried separately and then combined at the last minute.

This was pretty easy (except for the manpower question), seeing as anything that mentioned tomatoes or dairy is pretty much guaranteed to be Italian.

There are plenty of Chinese noodle concoctions that involve fragrant tomatoes and ground meat too!
