Instant Pot Lasagna Soup is a soup inspired by a favorite Italian dish. It’s cheesy, saucy, meaty goodness is a perfect comfort food for a damp, chilly, rainy day. Cooking in the Instant Pot keeps the heat out of the kitchen, making the meal perfect for a hot day too.
I love lasagna. But sometimes I don’t want to go to all of the trouble involved with making it. And sometimes I don’t want to eat it in the traditional manner with a fork. You see, lasagna is one of the best comfort foods out there in my opinion. It’s great with its layers of cheesy, meaty goodness, but it’s equally good if not better as a soup. As the weather warms and summer approaches and then arrives, I typically make less comfort food because it’s hot enough without heating up the kitchen. The Instant Pot pressure cooker makes a mean soup. I decided to have a go at making lasagna in a soup form, made in the Instant Pot. The soup was a big hit, devoured on the first night. It’s cheesy, saucy, meaty goodness is a perfect comfort food for a damp, chilly, rainy day. Here’s how I make it.
