How to Make Zucchini Noodles
The ideal way to make these would be with a julienne mandolin, which slices the squash to look almost exactly like spaghetti noodles. However, I don't have one of these yet, so I made a little bit wider noodles with a hand peeler, and it still turned out good.
Peel the whole zucchini (skin and all) with the peeler. When it got harder toward the end, then I used this basic slicing mandolin so I didn't cut up my fingers (slicing with this the whole time would result in wider, almost lasagna-like noodles).
Enjoy your pasta with spaghetti sauce or this fresh basil pesto and some fresh-grated Parmesan cheese...yum!
