What Type of Noodles Do You Use For Lasagna Soup 

Generally, I break up lasagna noodles and toss it into my soup. But, if I am wanting something different I just reach for a smaller dry pasta. Since you are cooking in the Instant Pot you need to steer clear of fresh or homemade pasta. Neither can hold up during the cooking process. 

Can I Use Sausage In Replace of Ground Beef 

Absolutely. If you prefer sausage in your lasagna go for that. Or you can do part beef and part sausage for an incredible flavor. My family tends to enjoy ground beef, but you are welcome to use what you would like.

What Do You Put On Top of Lasagna Soup 

I add on some shredded mozzarella cheese and a dollop of ricotta cheese. These two ingredients fully complete the lasagna soup. If you are not a fan of ricotta you can swap with cottage cheese, or skip it altogether.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Use Lean Ground Beef: Opt for lean ground beef to minimize excess grease in your soup. If you prefer, you can also use ground turkey or chicken as a healthier alternative.
  2. Frozen Onions: Frozen chopped onions are a convenient option that can save you time and tears! They’re a great shortcut to add flavor to your soup without the hassle of chopping fresh onions.
  3. Break Noodles Into Small Pieces: Break your lasagna noodles or pasta into smaller pieces before adding them to the soup. This ensures they cook evenly and are easier to eat.
  4. Adjust Seasonings: Taste your soup before serving and adjust the seasonings as needed. You can add more salt, pepper, or Italian herbs to suit your preferences.
  5. Quick Release: After cooking, do a quick release of pressure to prevent the pasta from overcooking and becoming mushy.
  6. Add Fresh Herbs: Garnish your soup with fresh herbs like basil or parsley for a burst of freshness and color.
  7. Top with Cheese Just Before Serving: For maximum cheesy goodness, top each bowl of soup with ricotta and shredded mozzarella cheese just before serving. The heat of the soup will melt the cheese and create a deliciously creamy texture.
  8. Leftovers? Freeze Them: If you have leftovers, portion them into freezer-safe containers and freeze for future meals. Instant Pot Lasagna Soup makes for a convenient and satisfying lunch or dinner option when you’re short on time.

  1. This was so good!! It’s like liquid lasagna, which is much less time consuming than actually lasagna but same wonderful taste!

  2. I’m wondering about the sodium content in the recipe. My mom is on a low sodium diet and I need to know if she can eat this because it sounds delicious.
