Equipment

  • Instant Pot
  • Wooden Spoon

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Italian Sausage
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon basil dried
  • 1 teaspoon oregano dried
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 5 garlic cloves pressed or minced
  • 4 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 1 cup carrots chopped up
  • 28 ounces crushed tomatoes with juice 1 can
  • 14 ounces tomato sauce 1 can
  • 5 cups chicken broth  (adjust for desired thickness)
  • 9 lasagna noodles broke in small pieces, about 1.5 inches long (you can use any type of noodle)

Topping Options

  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup cottage cheese (or ricotta)
  • fresh spinach
  • parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

Here are a couple things we recommend serving with your Instant Pot Lasagna Soup:
  • Garlic Bread – This one is a must! It’s the perfect way to soak up all that extra yummy sauce!
  • Side Salad – You don’t have to do anything fancy, but a salad really completes the meal.
  • Cheesecake – Why not make it a three course meal? You can never go wrong with cheesecake.
