What's the best way (within a fairly small budget) to record my bass at home?

I have this pedal on its way to me and i'm wondering if I can record through that or do I need to purchase something else that'll make it possible for me to record stuff for my band. I'm currently using Nuendo (Cubase) to record stuff.

The cheapest way would be to run a cable from the pedals' output to your PCs line in jack and use a recording software (such as Audacity).
Would I be getting the full effect from my pedal by using it as the only thing between my bass and PC?
well, in an ideal situation, you would have a good/decent interace to run instruments to your computer. that being said, it'll sound ok (not great) to run through the zoom into the line in
