Purchasing
When shopping for zucchini, choose small zucchini which tend to be younger, more tender and have thinner skins. The skin should be a vibrant color and free of blemishes.
Substitution
Gemelli is a pasta that looks like two strands of spaghetti twisted together. Rotini or penne pasta would work well in this recipe, too.
