Instant Pot Lasagna Soup

Instant Pot Lasagna Soup

It’s funny… when I was a kid, believe it or not, lasagna was one of my favorite things to cook. Not to mention that my stepmom would request it on a regular basis. I guess I’ve always enjoyed cooking meals that take lots of preparation. Well, now I’m married, running two businesses, and have 2 kids (with a third on the way). So as you can imagine… I rarely have time to make lasagna these days. This is why I developed Instant Pot lasagna soup.

I know I’m not the first person to post a recipe for Instant Pot lasagna soup, but what I’ve done is translate my multi-hour process into about 30 minutes.

Add tomato paste and cook out for about a minute. (Not absolutely necessary, but it helps get rid of that canned taste.)

    This looks delicious. I live outside of the US and haven’t been able to find an Instapot anywhere. Could this be made on the stove or in a Crockpot?

    Could I break the lasagna noodles in half before putting into the pot?

    My first recipe review 🙂
    I made this twice last week. Let my 10 year old granddaughter do all the measuring, mixing, etc. It was so easy and by far THE BEST soup I have made/eaten. Between the 4 kids and 2 adults we finished most of it so I had to whip up another batch after the kids left so I could bring some to my grandmother!
