This is the Instant Pot recipe that your family will LOVE! Instant Pot Lasagna Soup has all the goodness of traditional lasagna, in soup form. But, it’s a lot easier to make! Lasagna Soup has all the same delicious taste. And, it is lower in calories, carbs, and fat. Everything is made right in the Instant Pot. Including the pasta. Make this perfect weeknight soup for dinner tonight.

One of the things I like best about the Instant Pot is it’s one pot. Literally everything I make in it is a one pot meal.

And, this Instant Pot Lasagna Soup is no exception:

  • The meat and veggies are sautéed first.
  • Then, everything but the cheese goes right into the pot.

You may have noticed that I’ve been writing about the Instant Pot for a while now. With recipes and tutorials Instant Pot Basics and Instant Pot Tips.

It’s one of my most used kitchen appliances, especially in the summer. I just love my Instant Pot.

Even after two years, I’m still amazed how well it performs.

Cooking Pasta in the Instant Pot

Instant Pot

Thanks to a short cooking cycle, the pasta is cooked right in with the soup. And, it doesn’t come out soggy.

You can easily make substitutions or additions to this Instant Pot recipe. For example, to add more nutrition, sneak in some hidden veggies. I recommend chopped zucchini or squash.

And, don’t be afraid of using a lower fat sausage, such as chicken or turkey sausage. I do it all the time to cut back on the fat and calories.

How to Make Instant Pot Lasagna Soup

  • Start with your Instant Pot in the sauté mode. Brown the ground beef or sausage, onions, and bell pepper. This takes about 5 minutes.
Saute Sausage
  • Add the garlic and stir, sautéing until fragrant.
  • Then, everything but the cheese goes into the Instant Pot. Add the tomatoes and sauce, broth, water, seasonings, and pasta.
Lasagna Soup Ingredients

TFN TIP: To speed things up, preheat your water and the broth in a microwave oven until they are hot. I do this while the the sausage and onions mixture is browning. It allows the Instant Pot to come to pressure faster.

  • Next, pressure cook the lasagna soup. Secure the lid, twist the pressure release valve, and set at high pressure for 4 minutes.
Pasta and Ricotta Cheese
  • Let the lasagna soup naturally release for at least 10 minutes before doing a quick release. After it’s safe to open, lift the lid away from you to avoid the steam.
  • Drop in the ricotta cheese and stir to let it melt. Top with parmesan cheese, then serve.
