Lazy Instant Pot Lasagna Soup

This easy Instant Pot lasagna soup is amazing and healthy!! You can make it in the slow cooker too but in your pressure cooker or Ninja Foodi it’s done in just 8 minutes! If you loved our pressure cooker lasagna casserole this pasta dinner is another deconstructed old fashioned favorite.

Oh my goodness!! I just got an Instant Pot and this is my second recipe. I seriously cannot believe how quickly this lazy Instant Pot lasagna soup took to make! It’s now one of our favorite Instant Pot recipes. (participant in the Amazon program, affiliate links present)

Instant Pot Lasagna Soup Sausage

Ok so it’s lasagna but you’re pressure cooking with different noodles and meats. We love this classic Italian dish. You can make it as an easy Ninja Foodi or Crockpot Express recipe too. As long as it is electric with the saute and high pressure function you are good to go!

With kids, and those wide traditional noodles, they always had a hard time eating it. I also hated precooking them and trying to pick them up to layer them when they were entirely too hot. Lazy lasagna soup is the way to go y’all! You just brown the meat, throw everything else in and let it go.

If you are new to pressure cooking we have a lot of easy one pot meal recipes for you here. To begin with let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have (a 6 quart) and use for all recipe creations.

Ninja Foodi Lazy Lasagna

I will use bow tie pasta noodles in this Ninja Foodi recipe too if I find that on sale. They would be a bit smaller than these when it’s done, but totally your choice because of the “cuteness”. 😉 In order to make this lasagna soup recipe in just 8 minutes  you need a pot like this one. If you don’t have a pressure cooker I highly recommend getting one.

Ours you see here below was bought when they first came out and there were no recipes online for it at all. Since that is what I do for a living I got to work. This and our InstaPot spaghetti were the first two ever created and added on to the blog to share. We still make them both today……many many years later.

One of my favorite parts of this 7 in 1 multi cooker 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!

As for the meat you just want something ground. Sausage is our fave, then beef, but for lower fat chicken and turkey could be substituted. The latter won’t lend nearly as much flavor to the dish but that is up to you.

  1. Spicy ground Italian sausage – or ground beef
    1. I highly recommend getting a non stick pot for this and all other pressure cooker recipes
    2. this is how to thaw Instant Pot frozen ground beef in case you need it
  2. Onion
  3. Diced tomatoes
  4. Chicken or beef broth
  5. Noodles – uncooked, can use any style you like, these work great
  6. Mozzarella cheese
  7. Spaghetti sauce – marinara sauce or three cheese is great
  8. Chicken broth or beef broth
  9. Italian seasoning – optional

Dairy Free Lasagna Soup

If you need a version for those with a sensitive stomach to dairy it is totally easy. I have done this for my husband and will say you can find lactose free dairy products at almost any grocery store nowadays. It is surprisingly good and many times my kids can not even tell the difference.

If you wanted to make One Pot Lasagna Soup on the stovetop we have directions for that here too. Takes just a bit longer this way but not much. If you wanted to double this for a large crowd I might go this way since it will fit more.

How to make Crockpot lasagna soup is here too. You can make it layered and thicker or break the noodles with the same ingredients to make a thinner base.

  • If you want to make slow cooker lasagna soup just pre cook your meat first. 
  • Then add all ingredients other than noodles and cheeses and cook on low all day (6 hrs or so).
  • About 30 minutes before you’re going to eat put your noodles in.
  • Submerge them into the liquid.
  • Put crockpot on high 
  • Keep in longer if you want noodles more tender.
  • Top with cheeses and serve!

I’ve used larger noodles you see here but prefer smaller ones like you see above. You can use any brand too. If you want to make Crock Pot Express lasagna soup use the directions below too.

Pressure Cooker Lasagna Soup

No problem. Use the pressure cooker function with a quick release. Then at the end you could use air crisp mode with some extra cheese on top! All Instant Pot recipes are interchangeable no matter what brand you have.

Lazy Lasagna Soup

Why do we love both of these deconstructed lasagna recipes over the old fashioned way? It’s much easier to eat, especially for little kids. Using smaller noodles makes it much easier to make vs. trying to maneuver hot long noodles into a pan.

It is safer to make since there is NO boiling required. You just throw the uncooked noodles right in. Close your lid and they’ll be nice and tender in just 3 minutes.

  1. Serving this is a snap too. Just use a ladle and serve into bowls with some cheeses on top. Let’s be honest, a slice of lasagna never looks very pretty.

Another tweak to this one is making IP or Crockpot lasagna casserole after this. It has similar ingredients but is thicker and a bit heartier as you see here.

How many calories are in lasagna soup?

Of course it depends on your serving size but the nutritional information is below. If you alter the ingredients of course that will change a bit. I think personally when it comes to lasagna anything, I just dig in. If you are comparing the traditional method to this, soup will always have fewer calories overall with the increase of liquid.

Can you freeze lasagna soup?

If you do in fact have leftovers it is best to just store them in the fridge. Put what’s left in an airtight container and it will still be good for 2-3 days in there. To reheat put in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second increments stirring in between.

How many calories in lasagna soup?

Well we do include nutritional information in the printable recipe card below however they will vary. Depending on the style of sauce and cheese you use there will be slight differences. Yes you can use low fat ricotta and mozzarella cheeses if you choose to. Do I? NO. I feel like there is less processing in the “regular” versions and they have a lot more flavor. All in moderation I say.

Can you use lean ground beef vs. ground sausage like I have listed below? Sure, I just tell you what I’ve used that came out the BEST out of all of the batches.

I will say loudly that spicy ground sausage, like Jimmy Dean brand, is the BEST. There is tons of flavor right inside the meat so you could literally not add any other seasonings.

It will still be packed with a ton of flavor because of this meat selection. If you too love lasagna, follow our quick lasagna soup recipe below. Let us know what you and your family think!
