  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage
  • 1 quart low-sodium chicken broth
  • 24 oz jar marinara sauce recommended Rao's
  • 1 pound lasagna noodles broken into 2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • fresh basil or flat leaf parsley
  • freshly grated parmesan cheese for serving


  1. In a 6 Quart Instant Pot, heat olive oil using Sauté function set to high (More setting.) Sauté onions for 2-3 minutes or until they start to soften, then add garlic and sauté for another minute.
  2. Add ground sausage and season with one teaspoon of kosher salt and several turns of freshly ground pepper. Continue cooking sausage breaking up as it cooks until cooked through.

  3. Add low-sodium chicken broth to Instant Pot and use it to deglaze instant pot by scraping the bottom of the Instant Pot. Stir in marinara and broken uncooked lasagna noodles.

  4. Lock lid in place and set Instant Pot to 5 minutes on High Pressure. Make sure pressure release valve is set to sealing. Instant Pot will take 10-15 minutes to come to pressure, then will start 5 minute cooking time and countdown from there.
  5. Once Instant Pot has counted down from 5 minutes it has completed cooking. Turn pressure release valve to venting and let Instant Pot Quick Pressure Release. Stir in ricotta cheese and 1/2 cup mozarella cheese. Top with remaing mozzarella and let melt. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and parmesan. Serve immediately.
