This soup makes getting the flavors so much easier. Plus the whole thing is made in the instant pot, so there is only one thing to clean when it is all said and done.

Making lasagna soup

Start by browning a pound of Italian sausage using the saute function of your pressure cooker. It is easiest if you buy bulk Italian sausage, so you don’t have to remove the casings.

Feel free to use hot, mild or sweet sausage, it is up to you and your family’s taste preferences. If there is a lot of grease, go ahead and drain off the excess.

Then add a diced onion and seasonings and saute until the onions are translucent. Add chicken stock and scrape up any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.

Now break some lasagna noodles into bite sized pieces and toss them in the pot. Cook on high pressure for four minutes and then quick release the pressure.

Now stir in a jar of marinara sauce and cheese. Heat until the cheese is melted and it is ready to go.
