When I first made this easy lasagna soup recipe for my family, my kids told me it was the best soup recipe ever! And if my picky eaters love it, you’ll definitely want to add this easy lasagna soup to your list of easy Instant Pot recipes to try!

Lasagna soup is really like a deconstructed lasagna or lazy lasagna served in a bowl. It’s rich, meaty, cheesy and oh, so delicious! It’s also much, much faster than making traditional lasagna.

I could seriously go on and on about how incredible this pressure cooker lasagna soup is. It’s kind of a cross between our favorite Instant Pot creamy shells and beef and Instant Pot creamy sausage and shells, which are two of my family’s favorite easy dinner recipes.

How to Make Lasagna Soup in the Instant Pot?

I make the soup pretty much like I make regular lasagna. Start out by browning a mix of Italian sausage and lean ground beef. Then, add some spices and diced onions.

I usually don’t need to drain any grease, but you can do this if you want — before you add the spices.

Next, add a carton of low sodium beef broth or chicken broth, marinara sauce and some broken up lasagna noodles. Don’t stir it — just add everything on top.

You can also make this with bowtie pasta or any short, flat pasta if you don’t want to break up the larger pasta sheets.

I saw some mini lasagna-shaped pasta in our local Cost Plus the other day that would be perfect for this recipe. Next time, I’m trying that!

How Long to Pressure Cook the Soup

For lasagna soup, the meat is already cooked. So, you just have to heat it up and cook the pasta.

Pressure cook the lasagna soup for just 5 minutes, and let it release naturally for 5 minutes. Then, release the remaining pressure, and give it a good stir.

I like to add a little bit of heavy cream to the soup. This gives it a creamier texture that my family loves. You can omit the cream if you want.

What to Serve with It

Finally, top the soup with a mix of ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan cheese and shredded mozzarella. This will give the soup that classic lasagna taste. The cheese melts right into the soup, and it’s just pure comfort food heaven!

I serve the soup with crusty bread or garlic bread. A fresh green salad goes well with it, too.

Freeze For Later

Refrigerate leftover soup for about 4 days in a covered container. You can also freeze lasagna soup for later.

This soup also freezes and reheats well. Just keep it covered in a freezer safe container. Freezing smaller portions works best!

So, if you want the awesomeness of lasagna without all of the work, make this Instant Pot lasagna soup, instead. It’s a quick and easy Instant Pot dinner that even picky eaters love!
