3. With a Mandoline

I actually hummed and hawed about making the mandoline #2 on my list (because I love it that much) – but the julienne peeler won for size. I’ve had this mandoline for several years and it gets used a ton in my kitchen.

The mandoline creates julienne noodles that are slightly thicker than a peeler, but does it in half the time. The blades are SUPER sharp on a mandoline, so please please always use the plastic holder or a cut-resistant glove. I’ve sliced a massive divot out of my thumb before – and it’s not fun.

The best flat zucchini pasta can be made with a mandoline, which also lets you adjust the thickness. It has multiple blade options, just like the Paderno World Cuisine Spiralizer, so you can create perfectly uniform noodles, slices, or rounds. It also effortlessly chops through any vegetable that is “harder to slice.” Alright, maybe this is actually a tie for #2.

PROS: Consistent size and width of output, and easy and quick slicing because of the sharp blade

CONS: medium storage capacity and a sharp blade (use caution when handling your fingers).

2. How to Microwave Zucchini Noodles

Microwave cooking is my second favorite cooking method because it’s the fastest way to cook zucchini noodles. Simply fill a microwave-safe dish to the brim with noodles, then cook for one minute. The amount of noodles you have will determine how long to cook them, but in order to avoid overcooking, I would suggest cooking them in 30-second increments. Next, divide the noodles among serving dishes and drizzle with your preferred sauce.
