Your Italian grandma probably never imagined making lasagna in an Instant Pot! Now that we live in a busy world where we may not have hours to make delicious lasagna like grandma did, we need it tasty and we need it fast! Luckily, this recipes will give you just that- a quick lasagna so full of flavor that all those Italian grandmas will be so proud!

Suggested tools for this recipe:

  • Instant Pot
  • Measuring Cup
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Springform pan
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Small Bowl
  • Spoon or rubber spatula
  • Broiler

Steps

1
Done

Place the ground beef or sausage in the bottom of the Instant Pot and set to saute. Add the first quantity of salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. Cook, stirring occasionally to break up the meat into small pieces, for about 7 minutes or until the ground beef is browned and cooked through.

2
Done

Remove the meat from the pot and set aside.

3
Done

Clean the Instant pot bowl and then return it to the base. Pour 1 ½ cups of water into the instant pot bowl.

4
Done

In a medium sized bowl, combine the ricotta, eggs, first quantity of mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese, remaining garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper.

5
Done

Using one of the pre cooked noodles, break the noodle up into pieces and spread across the bottom of a springform pan. Make sure the noodles cover the bottom completely.

6
Done

Spread about ⅓ of the pasta sauce across the noodles and then top with about ½ of the cooked meat mix. Top with about ½ of the cheese mixture and spread evenly.

7
Done

Add another layer of noodles followed by another layer of sauce, meat and cheese. Repeat this process until you have used all the noodles and fillings and have reached the top of the pan.

8
Done

Sprinkle the top with the final mozzarella and parmesan.

9
Done

Cover the pan with a piece of foil and place the pan inside the Instant POt on top of the trivet. (The pot should still have the clean water in the bottom which may barely reach the lasagna pan).

10
Done

Close the lid and set the dial to “Seal”.

11
Done

Press the “Manual” setting and set your timer for 24 minutes at high pressure. It will take about 10 minutes for the Instant pot to heat and seal before the timer begins.

12
Done

Once the Instant Pot cycle is complete, let the pressure release naturally for 15 minutes.

13
Done

Remove the pan of lasagna from the Instant Pot and take the foil off the top.

14
Done

To brown the top cheese on the lasagna, place the pan under a hot boiler for 5 minutes.

15
Done

Serve the lasagna directly from the pan or remove it by loosening the sides of the springform latch and pushing the bottom up and out of the pan.
