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, originally published 1/17)
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 (or less depending on how al dente you like it) 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!
This is what you’ll need to make this Instant Pot lasagna soup and a video showing you how we made it

This easy Instant Pot lasagna soup is amazing and healthy too!! You can make it in the slow cooker too but in your pressure cooker it's done in just 8 minutes! Your favorite pasta dinner is now a soup and much easier to make than the traditional method. Packed with cheese and ground beef its sure to be a favorite.
- 1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
- 1/2 onion diced
- 1 c diced tomatoes used canned
- 40 oz chicken broth less if you want it thicker
- 1 jar spaghetti sauce (24 oz)
- 1.5 c noodles uncooked , could use bowtie or other type
- pinch salt
- pinch oregano
- 1 c mozzarella cheese for topping
- 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.
Add all other ingredients except ricotta and mozzarella (those are used for toppings).
Switch setting to the manual, pressure, high, 3 minutes (if you want your noodles real soft cook for 4 minutes).
Release steam valve carefully by moving it just slightly so steam comes out slowly, when done turn off and remove lid. Done!!
Top with small spoonful of ricotta and a pinch of mozzarella cheese on top.
If you want to make this in your slow cooker just pre cook your meat and add all ingredients other than noodles and cheeses and cook on low all day. About 30 minutes before you’re going to eat put your noodles in, submerge, and put on high or until they are the tenderness you desire.
Top with cheeses and serve!
