If you have a spiralizer, now is your chance to use it. If not, take a medium sized zucchini and cut off the ends. Using a peeler, peel top to bottom until you start to see seeds. Rotate the zucchini and repeat until you have 1 3/4 cups worth.
Line up all the peelings and slice into thin strips about 1/8 inch wide. Should look like linguine.
