To make these vegetable “noodles” I used this new product from Microplane, called a Spiral Cutter.  It quickly and effortlessly created elegant spiral cuts from the zucchini and carrot in this recipe.  The shape is comfortable to hold and you use it like you would a pencil sharpener.  Plus, it is top rack dishwasher safe – I love it!
