Equipment

  • Instant Pot Pressure Cooker
  • Fat Daddio 7 x 3 inch Cake Pan (removable bottom)

Ingredients

  • ▢8 (160g – 200g) oven-ready lasagna noodles
  • ▢2 cups (150g – 180g) Mozzarella cheese , shredded in large pieces
  • ▢¼ cup (30g – 40g) Parmesan cheese , grated
  • ▢2.5 – 3 cups (600g – 750g) meat sauce
  • Salt + pepper to taste

Ricotta Cheese Mixture

  • ▢¾ cup (200g) Ricotta cheese
  • ▢1 teaspoon (1g) Italian seasoning
  • ▢1 large egg
  • ▢⅓ teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions 

  • Create Ricotta Cheese Mixture: In a mixing bowl, beat one large egg, then add in ¾ cup (200g) Ricotta cheese. Season with 1 tsp (1g) Italian seasoning, ground black pepper, and ⅓ tsp kosher salt.
  • Assemble Instant Pot Lasagna: Line a 7-inch springform pan with cut-out parchment paper (optional).Break the uncooked oven-ready lasagna noodles into smaller pieces, then layer them at bottom of the pan in a single layer. Layer ⅓ portion of the meat sauce on the lasagna noodles. Layer Ricotta cheese mixture on the meat sauce, then add shredded mozzarella cheese on top. Repeat this layering cycle twice. Add ¼ cup (30g – 40g) freshly grated Parmesan cheese on the very top. Then, wrap the springform pan tightly with aluminum foil.
  • Pressure Cook Lasagna: Pour 1 cup (250ml) cold water, then place a trivet in Instant Pot. Create a sling foil, then place springform pan in Instant Pot. Close lid, then pressure cook at High Pressure for 24 minutes + 10 minutes Natural Release.*Note: Since some oven-ready lasagna noodles take longer to cook, make sure to check that the noodles are properly cooked before proceeding to the next step. If they’re still a bit firm, cover it with the aluminum foil, place it back in the Instant Pot, then Pressure Cook at High Pressure for another 5 – 6 minutes + Quick Release.
  • Optional Broil Lasagna: Preheat oven to 425°F when Instant Pot is natural releasing. Place the cooked lasagna in a 425°F oven until the cheese is browned on top (~7 – 9 mins).
  • Serve: If your meat sauce is rather liquidy or thin, let it cool so the lasagna can set and keep in shape.For an easier release, use a paring knife to gently release the Lasagna from the springform pan. Slice the glorious lasagna and serve immediately. Enjoy~ ?
