How to Make Pasta in the Instant Pot

The Instant Pot saves the day here! The pressure created in the pot helps this lasagna cook quickly. While it’s not really instant, cooking in an Instant Pot takes roughly less than half of the time.

Everything cooks in one pot. There’s no need to precook your pasta. The ingredients all go into the pot. And when you’re done, you just throw the liner pot into the dishwasher for clean up. Is that a win-win or what?
