This is the Instant Pot recipe that your family will LOVE! Instant Pot Lasagna Soup has all the goodness of traditional lasagna, in a soup. But, it’s a lot easier with all the same delicious taste, and is lower in calories, carbs, and fat. Everything is made right in the Instant Pot. And, that includes the pasta. Make this perfect weeknight soup for dinner tonight.
One of the things I like best about the Instant Pot is that almost everything I make in it is a one pot meal. And, this Instant Pot Lasagna Soup is no exception.
The meat and veggies are sautéed first, then everything but the cheese goes right into the pot.
It’s one of my most used kitchen appliances, especially in the summer. I just love my Instant Pot. Even after two years, I’m still amazed how it performs.
Why This Works in the Instant Pot
Thanks to the short cooking cycle (4 minutes) the pasta is cooked right in with the soup. And, it doesn’t come out soggy.
What I like about this soup recipe is how you can easily make substitutions or additions. To add more nutrition to this Lasagna Soup recipe, sneak in some hidden veggies.
I suggest adding chopped zucchini or spinach, along with the tomatoes. And, don’t be afraid of using a lower fat sausage, such as chicken or turkey sausage. I do it all the time to cut back on the fat and calories.
How to Make Instant Pot Lasagna Soup
On your Instant Pot’s saute mode, brown the ground beef or sausage, onions, and bell pepper. This takes about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic and stir, sauteing until fragrant.
Then everything but the cheese goes into the Instant Pot. The tomatoes and sauce, broth, water, seasonings, and pasta.
To speed things up, preheat your water and the broth in a microwave oven until they are hot. I do this while the the sausage and onions mixture is browning. It allows the Instant Pot to come to pressure faster.
Then it’s time to pressure cook our lasagna soup. Secure the lid, twist the pressure release valve, and set at high pressure for 4 minutes.
Let the lasagna soup naturally release for at least 10 minutes before doing a quick release.
After it’s safe to open, lift the lid away from you to avoid the steam.
Drop in the ricotta cheese and stir to let it melt.
