WHAT IS AN INSTANT POT?
Haven’t jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon yet? Well, you may want to consider it just for this recipe alone!
Instant Pot is a seven-in-one multi-cooker that works as an electric pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, warmer, and sauté pan all in one.
Sounds a little too good to be true, but we promise it’s worth every penny! I haven’t used my slow cooker in weeks, which is saying a lot for this 3-4 times a week slow cooking girl!

How to make Instant Pot Lasagna Soup:
Turn Instant Pot to SAUTE function. When the display reads “Hot,” add the meat and red pepper flakes. Cook until you can’t see any pink in the meat, stirring occasionally.
Add the onion, Italian seasoning, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Cook for a couple of minutes, until the onion starts to turn translucent, stirring occasionally.
Add the garlic and mushrooms, and cook for 1 minutes, stirring frequently.
Next add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, carrots, broth and pasta and mix well.
Put the lid on the Instant Pot, lock into place, and turn the knob to SEALING.
Turn off/Cancel the SAUTE function.
Press the MANUAL/PRESSURE COOK button and then set for 6 minutes.
When the cook time ends, do a quick release of the pressure. Make sure no sauce comes out with the steam, then turn the steam release knob fully.
When the pin in the lid drops down, open the lid. Stir the soup and separate any noodles that stuck together (sometimes I get a few). Then add the mozzarella cheeses. Stir well and let it melt. Then add the spinach and cottage cheese and stir again.
Serve in bowls with extra Parmesan cheese if desired.
RICOTTA CHEESE VS. COTTAGE CHEESE
Lasagna recipes vary in their use of ricotta vs cottage cheese. Feel free to either, depending on your preference or what you have in your fridge.
Cottage cheese is sometimes viewed as a healthier option because it’s lower in fat and calories, but it doesn’t affect the taste at all.
If you choose cottage cheese, we recommend using a small curd variety.
You can use Other kinds of pastA
While we haven’t tried it personally, other recipes use different kinds of pasta in their lasagna soup. If you’d like or you don’t have lasagna noodles on hand, you can try bowtie or penne noodles.
If you do try a different variety of pasta, you may need to adjust the cooking time. Let us know if you give it a try!
