Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 6 people
- 1 lbs ground turkey or beef thawed and broken into chunks or pre-cooked-it's up to you!
- 1 cup cottage cheese or ricotta
- 1 cup Italian cheese blend
- 1 - 28 oz can crushed tomatoes (NOT canned tomatoes–they have too much liquid in them) If you'd like to use jarred low-sugar sauce you can.
- 1 tbsp oregano
- 3 cups spinach leaves
- 1 tbsp thyme
- 1 tbsp parsley
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tbsp garlic
- 6 whole wheat lasagna noodles I used uncooked (not oven ready), but you can use oven ready whole wheat if you have them.
Directions for Making Instant Pot Lasagna:
In a large bowl mix Italian cheese and cottage cheese. In a separate bowl combine crushed tomatoes, thyme, parsley, pepper, onion powder, and garlic salt (or add your sauce now!).
Add sauce to bottom of 7 inch spring form pan. Layer noodles, cheese mix, sauce, uncooked ground turkey, and spinach. Repeat till pan is full. Use two layers of noodles.
Top with remaining cheese and cover with aluminum foil.
Fold a long piece of foil into thirds the long way to form a sling. This will make it easier to remove the pan from the Instant Pot when done.
Add 3C water to the bottom of the Instant Pot, insert lasagna in spring pan into the Instant Pot on top of the trivet, using the foil sling.
Cook on high pressure using the manual setting for 35 minutes. Let pressure naturally release.
Remove lasagna from Instant Pot using the sling as handles. Remove the foil covering the lasagna and place under broiler to brown cheese. Top with fresh basil.
Please note: Substitutions that you make will impact the food you serve on your table tonight. Crushed tomatoes, thawed turkey, etc. are listed for a reason :)
