  • 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 :)
