Step 1

1 In a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil until it shimmers

Step 2

2 Add the zucchini in a single layer, if possible, along with a big pinch of salt, and saute until softened and charred in spots, 4 to 5 minutes per side

Step 3

3 In a large bowl, combine the water, cream cheese, heavy cream, 3/4 cup (about 2 ounces) of the Parmesan and lemon zest

Step 4

4 Lightly season with salt and pepper and whisk until well combined

Step 5

5 It’s okay if there are a few lumps of cream cheese — they will melt when heated

Step 6

6 Once the zucchini is ready, add the garlic and nutmeg and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute

Step 7

7 Pour the creamy mixture into the skillet and stir until it just starts to bubble

Step 8

8 Add all of the spinach and most of the basil a handful at a time, stirring as it wilts down before adding more

Step 9

9 Once the spinach and basil are wilted, reduce the heat to medium

Step 10

10 Add the lasagna pieces and, using a wooden spoon, make sure they are all submerged and spread out as much as possible in the sauce

Step 11

11 Cover the skillet and cook for about 6 minutes to soften the noodles

Step 12

12 Uncover and stir the lasagna pieces, making sure that some of the sauce and vegetables get tucked between them, so they don't stick together

Step 13

13 Then, flatten them out as much as possible, keeping them submerged: This will create a lasagna that you will be able to cut into

Step 14

14 Scatter with the remaining Parmesan, then cover and cook for 2 minutes, or until a knife slides through the noodles without any resistance

Step 15

15 The lasagna will appear a little soupy

Step 16

16 Remove from the heat, uncover and let sit for 5 minutes

Step 17

17 If the lasagna still seems too saucy, return the pan to medium-low heat and simmer, uncovered, for another 2 minutes

Step 18

18 When ready to serve, scatter over the remaining basil leaves, more cheese, if using, and the pine nuts

Step 19

19 Use a large spoon or spatula to divide into portions and serve straight out of the pan at the table
