Instant Pot Lasagna Soup


This satisfying and hearty soup has all the flavors of lasagna, but without the fuss of layering ingredients in a baking dish and waiting for the lasagna to bake. Here, we take advantage of the multicooker to prepare a soup that is ready in 10 minutes. Just top the soup with ricotta and Parmesan and enjoy!

4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ pound chicken or turkey sausage, removed from casing, if necessary

  • 1 (28 ounce) can no-salt-added crushed tomatoes

  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth

  • 2 cups water

  • 6 ounces whole-wheat lasagna noodles, broken into smaller pieces

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil, plus more for garnish

  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup part-skim ricotta cheese

  • 4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

  • Ground pepper, for garnish


  1. Heat oil in a multicooker on sauté mode until hot. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until fragrant and translucent, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in sausage and continue to cook, breaking the sausage apart with a wooden spoon, until browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes.

  2. Add tomatoes, broth, water, noodles, basil, tomato paste, vinegar, oregano and salt. Close and lock the lid of the multicooker and cook on high pressure for 4 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, then release the remaining pressure manually.

  3. Divide the soup among 4 bowls. Top each with 2 tablespoons ricotta and 1 tablespoon Parmesan. Garnish with basil and pepper, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
