Instant Pot Lasagna

One of our favorite meals is lasagna, we are Italian so of course, it is a staple meal in our house! I’ve been making it in the Instant Pot and I am finally sharing my recipe with you!

Grab your favorite pressure cooker or Instant Pot and let’s get started! If you’ve never used an Instant Pot, check out my Instant Pot 101 post!

These stackable pans make this lasagna a breeze to make, but any 7 inch round pan will work!

Start by browning the Italian Sausage with the onion and two cloves of garlic.

Drain the grease and then add the pasta sauce to the meat and allow it to simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix the ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, two cloves of garlic, pesto sauce, egg and seasonings.

Break the lasagna noodles in half, add pasta sauce to the bottom of the pan then start layering the lasagna.

Begin with a layer of noodles, then meat sauce, then another layer of noodles, then the ricotta mixture and finally a layer of mozzarella. Repeat at least twice and finish with a layer of meat sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Cover the pans, add 1 cup of water to the inner pot of the Instant pot, and place the pans on a trivet or directly into the pot.

Put the lid on, turn the venting knob to “sealing” and cook on HIGH pressure for 25 minutes. When the timer goes off, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure.

Carefully remove the lid and pans from the Instant Pot. Place under the broiler for 3-4 minutes.

Note: You can freeze the lasagna in the pan for future use. The cooking time will be the same. 🙂

Enjoy!

Instant Pot Zuppa Toscana Soup

If you haven’t tried Zuppa Toscana soup before…. walk, no wait, RUN to the store and grab the ingredients. You will not regret it! This is my absolute favorite soup recipe and the kids love it too! Yes, the kids love a recipe with kale in it! haha!

Here’s what you’ll need:

For seasonings, you’ll need:

-1/2 tsp of Italian Seasoning

-1/4 tsp of Salt

-1/4 tsp Black Pepper

Start out by washing and slicing the potatoes. You can peel them or leave the skins on, it’s up to you.

Slice the onion and garlic too!

Turn the Instant Pot to Saute mode and allow it to heat up before adding the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes then add the sausage and cook until brown.

Add the chicken broth, seasonings and potatoes and stir.

Close the lid, turn the venting knob to “sealing” and cook on HIGH pressure for 10 minutes before quickly releasing the pressure.

When all of the pressure has released, remove the lid. Add the heavy cream, kale and bacon and stir for 2-3 minutes to allow the kale to wilt.

Serve and enjoy!
