Oh my goodness!! I just got an Instant Pot and this is my second recipe. I seriously cannot believe how quickly this Instant Pot lasagna soup took to make! It’s now one of our favorite Instant Pot recipes. (originally published 1/17, participant in the Amazon program, affiliate links present)

  • Ok so it’s lasagna but you’re pressure cooking with different noodles. We love this classic Italian dish.
  • You can make it as an easy Ninja Foodi recipe too.

With kids and those wide noodles though they had a hard time eating it, and I hated precooking them. Lazy lasagna soup is the way to go y’all!

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.

You could easily use bow tie pasta noodles too. They would be a bit smaller than these when it’s done, but totally your choice.

In order to make this lasagna soup recipe in just 8 minutes  you need an Instant Pot. A Ninja Foodi or Crock Pot Express will work great too.

If you don’t have a pressure cooker I highly recommend getting one.

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!

How to make crockpot lasagna soup

  • 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.

  • 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?

  1. It’s much easier to eat, especially for little kids.
  2. 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.

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.

I'm so excited to try my new insta pot. It is a three quart. I believe I have to use the same amount of liquid and cooking time as a 6 quart. Do I half the meat, tomatoes, tomato sauce? Thanks

We love this recipe. We add more broken up lasagna noodles than called for. My granddaughters ask for this every time they visit. They help make it. We use more onion than it calls for and always add fresh garlic. We've used chicken and beef broth. We've used ground beef, ground chicken/turkey as well as Italian sausage. Or a combination. It turns out great It's a good recipe to play around with. We usually make our own ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese when the granddaughters come. So, this is a Recipe they are always proud of and eat very well. I've added it to my FAVORITES.
