    Love the idea of cutting the zucchini this way - I made my ribbons with a peeler. Used roasted garlic in mine so it wasn't 100% raw. - 4/18/09

  • I find if I take the zucchini and place it in a collander in the sink, sprinkle sea salt on in and let it sit and drain for awhile, it mocks pasta closer. For my family at first I had to peel it, now I leave the skin on. It helps them break into raw much easier too. - 9/22/12
