  • 12 dried lasagna noodles
  • 24 oz jar marinara sauce
  • 2 cups water
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese


  • Add 1 cup of water to bottom of Instant Pot
  • Break 4 of the noodles into 2-3 pieces each and layer in the bottom
  • Top with 1/2 of the ricotta cheese and then with about 1/2 cup of the marinara
  • Repeat the noodle, ricotta and marinara layers
  • Top with final 4 broken noodles and remaining marinara
  • Cover, seal and set to high pressure for 5 minutes
  • Allow 10 minute natural pressure release then turn valve to release remaining pressure
  • Remove lid, top with shredded mozzarella and let set for 10 minutes before serving


  • Instant Pot will take 10-15 minutes to come to pressure, about 5 minutes to cook and 10 minutes to allow for natural pressure release. Hands on cooking time for this recipe is about 10 minutes.
  • I made this in a 6 quart pressure cooker
  • Lasagna will appear very watery after cooking. Let stand with lid off for at least 10 minutes before serving to allow it to firm up.
