Recipe Notes

* I use a spiralizer to make my zucchini noodles but there are other ways to make zucchini noodles without a spiralizer, including the following:

  • use a vegetable peeler and create long fettuccine-like noodles
  • use a paring knife to cut the noodles into more rustic, thicker noodles
  • use a kitchen grater to create short, rice-like zucchini noodles by shredding the zucchini lengthwise
