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!

Start by placing one tortilla in the bottom of the springform pan.

Add one spoonful of taco meat on top of the beans.

Top with olives and cheese.

Repeat the layers 3-4 times and top the final layer with cheese and olives.

Add 1 Cup of water to the Instant Pot, place the springform pan onto a trivet and carefully lower the trivet into the Instant Pot. Close the lid, turn the venting knob to sealing and cook on HIGH pressure for 10 minutes before quickly releasing the pressure.

Carefully open the lid and remove the trivet and springform pan.

When the timer is up, allow the pressure to release naturally. This can take anywhere from 20-45 minutes, you will know that all of the pressure has released when the silver pin drops. Only then will you be able to open the lid.

Open the lid carefully and shred the chicken.

Okay, I have to admit… about seven years ago, I could only cook Hamburger Helper. LOL! It’s a place to start, right? Well, NOW I can cook almost anything… and I decided to convert this family favorite to an Instant Pot recipe, minus the boxed ingredients. 😉 It turned out AMAZING. So amazing, in fact that my 7 and 5 year olds asked me to send it in their lunches for school today! It’s super simple to make and only calls for a few ingredients.
