Instant Pot Lasagna

Hi friends!

I know why you are here. You want an easy and fast recipe! Me too.

However, I did NOT come up with this recipe myself. I was inspired by a few posts on social media and had to make it asap. The recipes called for traditional ingredients but I used what I had on hand and this is what I came up with for my family.

It was delicious and I will definitely make it again.

It’s equally important to note that my version is NOT your traditional lasagna. It’s more like a lasagna inspired bowl of pasta. But it tastes like one, it’s fast and that’s all that I care about today.

Let’s make it.

I have a 3qt Instant Pot but if you have the 6 or larger, you can double up the recipe and make for a crowd. Either way, let me know if you try this and how you like it! I love to hear your feedback.
