5 Boil spaghetti and zoodles

Meanwhile, bring a pot of salted water to the boil. Once boiling, add the spaghetti and cook for 8-10 min to 'al dente' or until cooked to your liking. While the spaghetti is boiling, slice the zucchini very thinly lengthwise. Then cut the slices into long ribbons. Add the zucchini ribbons to the boiling pasta for the last 30 sec, then drain.
