How to make zucchini noodles
Pick straight zucchini that are at least 2 inches thick.
Trim the ends off as straight as possible. You may wish to cut each zucchini in half across the center, to make two shorter pieces.
Use the small (⅛ inch) blade on your spiralizer. Attach one end of the zucchini to the rotating paddle, and center the middle of the opposite end of the zucchini on the circular blade.
Rotate the handle with gentle pressure to generate zucchini noodles.
If you are getting many short 'half moon' noodles, remove the zucchini and re-center it on the blade.
