What is Instant Pot Lasagna?
You have probably made a traditional lasagna which as you know can take upwards of 3 hours to prepare and bake. Those days are over once you own an Instant Pot.

What kind of noodles should I use for Instant Pot Lasagna?
I used Ronzoni No Boil Lasagna Noodles. You literally just take them out of the package uncooked and lay them in your pan to start building your lasagna layers. These no boil noodles are easy to break with your hands making it easy to fit into different size baking dishes.
Do I have to use Lasagna Noodles in this WW Lasagna Recipe?
No absolutely not. If you are watching your carb and calorie intake just build your layers with thinly sliced zucchini, eggplant or hearts of palm.

What kitchen tools do I need for this Easy Instant Pot Lasagna?
- An Instant Pot
- Not Required - But a Bonus - Air Fryer
- One Pound of Lean Ground Beef or Chicken or Turkey Chop Meat - Or you can can also prepare without meat and use sliced Zucchini and Eggplant for a Vegan version.
- One small onion diced
- One garlic clove minced
- 28 ounce can of crushed tomatoes
- 15 ounce can of tomato sauce
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of oregano
- ½ teaspoon of basil
- ¼ teaspoon of Red Pepper Flakes
- 1 Cup of Part Skim Ricotta Cheese
- 1 ½ Cups of Shredded Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese
- 6-8 No Bake Lasagna Noodles
- ½ Cup of Shredded Parmesan Cheese
1: Press Saute on your Instant Pot and add a tablespoon of Olive Oil. Add your meat of choice, onion, garlic and any other veggies you would like to add then stir frequently with a wooden spoon breaking up your chop meat and sautéing everything together about 5-7 minutes.
You can also sauté everything in a pan on the stovetop to skip having to clean the inner pot of your Instant Pot. It is quicker to prepare this way - but if you only have an Instant Pot then use the sauce feature.
2: Next Add in the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt, oregano, basil and red pepper flakes to your chop meat cooking and let simmer together for another 5 minutes to allow all of the flavors to blend together.
3: While your meat sauce is simmering grab separate bowl and mix the ricotta cheese, one cup of the mozzarella cheese and the parmesan cheese together and blend well.
5: Once you have cleaned your inner pot place it back in your Instant Pot Base then add 1 ½ cups of water to your Inner Instant Pot and place a wire trivet into the pot which the lasagna pan will sit on.
6: Now it's time to layer your Lasagna - grab your 7 ½ x 3 ½ Inch Round Baking Pan and give it a spritz of olive oil spray.
7: Spoon ⅓ of your meat sauce into the bottom of your pan. Break 2-3 no bake lasagna noodles to lay on top of the sauce. If you are making a vegan lasagna just use plain sauce on the bottom. Next add half of your ricotta cheese mixture. Repeat with another layer of sauce and no bake noodles - you can also add sliced zucchini or eggplant here as well for some veggies. Continue layer until you reach the top - make sure you end with sauce on top covering all the noodles then sprinkle with cheese.
8: Cover your pan loosely with aluminum foil.
10: Place lid on your Instant Pot - turn the steam release valve to the sealed position. Press the pressure cook button and set time for 24 minutes. High Pressure. It takes the pot about 5 minutes to build to full pressure.
11: When the cook cycle is completed do not open the pot. Let it sit for about 10-15 minutes to naturally release the pressure. Before opening the lid turn the pressure release knob to the venting position to release any remains pressure. When the pressure has been released you will see the pin on the lid drops down, when you see this you may open the lid safely.
12: Use pot holders to lift the lasagna out of the Instant Pot.
13: Remove the foil - now it is time to brown and crisp your lasagna. You have 2 options - if you have an Air Fryer you can place your lasagna pan into the Air Fryer for about 5 minutes on 360 Degrees for a nice crisp. If you do not have an Air Fryer use your oven and turn on your boiler to 450 degrees and place your lasagna on the middle rack for about 5 minutes to crisp nicely.
14: Remove from oven and get ready to serve..Yummy!
