Set aside. *Note: The Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer has 12 Smart programs so it will guide you on selections based on the vessel you've attached to the base.
  • Peel zucchini and cut off ends so they're flat. Remove the food processor vessel and replace with the Auto-Spiralizer vessel. Use the fettuccine blade (green) to spiralize.
  • Pour the alfredo sauce mixture into a saucepan, add basil and cook over medium-high heat until heated through. Reduce heat to low and add zoodles. Cover and simmer for 10 - 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add chicken and spinach and stir.
