Oh my goodness!! I just got an Instant Pot and this is my second recipe, I seriously cannot believe how quickly it cooks everything! It is quite chilly here in SoCal so we are all about soups for dinner. I have made lasagna in the crockpot, so thought I should try to make it as a soup in my new kitchen appliance…..it came out amazing and in just 20 minutes from start to finish! Here’s how you make Instant Pot lasagna soup, that’s what we decided to call it. 😉 It’s now one of our favorite Instant Pot recipes. (affiliate links present)
Ok so we used different noodles, but with kids in the house I could just see those wide lasagna noodles (even broken up they’d be big) flipping out of spoons and decided rigatoni noodles were the answer. You could easily use bow tie pasta noodles too which would be a bit smaller than these when it’s done, your choice. In order to make this lasagna soup recipe in just 13 minutes you need an Instant Pot. If you don’t have an Instant Pot I highly recommend it, after just a few recipes I can’t believe I waited so long to try it!
One of my favorite parts of this 7 in 1 pressure cooker is that you can brown your meat right in it, then add everything else on top, snap the lid on and let it cook. Before I had to dirty a pan on the stovetop to do this part, makes it so much easier!
Here’s the recipe and how easy it is to make.
Instant Pot lasagna soup
OH MY this Instant Pot lasagna soup is amazing!! You can make it in the slow cooker or pressure cooker too but this is done in just 8 minutes, and healthy too!
- 1 lb . ground beef
- 1/2 onion diced
- 1 c . diced tomatoes used canned
- 6 c . chicken stock less if you want it thicker
- 1 jar spaghetti sauce
- 2 c . uncooked rigatoni noodles could use bowtie or other type
- pinch of salt
- pinch of oregano
- 1 c . shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 c . ricotta cheese could omit, it's just as good without it
Set Instant Pot to saute and brown ground beef with diced onions. Switch setting to the soup setting and adjust time to 6 minutes. Add all other ingredients except ricotta and mozzarella (those are used for toppings). Secure lid and allow to cook (if you want your noodles softer cook for 8-10 minutes, we like our noodles really soft). Release steam valve carefully, when done turn off and remove lid. Done!! Top with small spoonful of ricotta and a pinch of mozzarella cheese on top. I've made this recipe before when I didn't have ricotta cheese and it was still fabulous! The day after it reminded me of goulash as the noodles sucked up a bit more of the juices, but the kids still though it was fantastic.
Now that it is the new year we are trying to eat healthier, still have delicious meals, and have them done quickly…this easy Instant Pot recipe accomplishes all 3 for us! If you’re looking for more Instant Pot recipes we have several including our Instant Pot chili that is healthy too!
