Instant Pot Lasagna Soup is an easy and flavorful meal made in the Instant Pot with ground beef, Italian spices, and a tasty tomato sauce.

Lasagna Soup is my definition of pure comfort food. I love easy and tasty soups like my Instant Pot Loaded Baked Potato Soup, Pressure Cooker Meatball Soup, and IP Tomato Soup.

Instant Pot Lasagna Soup

Instant Pot recipes are a staple around here, and this Lasagna Soup is a fool-proof recipe that even beginners can make in the Instant Pot. The soup packs all the amazing flavors of a hearty Italian lasagna and is especially delicious when topped with cheese.

Ground beef is browned to perfection and after that cooked with Italian spices and sweet San Marzano tomatoes. Lasagna noodles are added uncooked to the pot, which makes this recipe even easier.

If you want to make this Pressure Cooker Lasagna Soup more delicious, serve it in oven-proof bowls, topped with mozzarella cheese and put them under the broiler for a few minutes for the cheese to brown!

What do you need to make Instant Pot Lasagna Soup:

This is an easy dish to make, which requires a few simple ingredients. For exact measures, please see the recipe card below. Also, I have included step-by-step video instruction on how to make this dish. So, feel free to watch it. 

  • Beef: You can make this recipe with either ground beef or sausage. You can even use ground chicken for a lighter version, but it won’t be as flavorful. To make it vegetarian, just skip the meat and use more veggies.
  • Veggies: I like to use the veggies that I have on hand, as the soup is very customizable. I usually go for some onion, garlic, carrot and bell pepper.
  • Seasoning: Using dried herbs it will add extra flavor and depth to the meal. To make it closer to an Italian lasagna dinner, I use a mix of thyme basil, oregano, and rosemary.
  • Tomatoes: These are key to make the broth taste amazing, so using high quality canned diced tomatoes and tomato sauce is key.
  • Lasagna Noodles: Here you can use your favorite lasagna noodles, I usually break them in half before adding to the pressure cooker.

Topping suggestions:

  • Bacon crumbs or chopped bacon
  • Cheddar cheese or Mozzarella cheese
  • Chopped green onion
  • A dollop of sour cream

  • I recommend using quart bags for this soup. Use a cup to transfer the soup from the pot into the bag. Squeeze out excess air and seal the bags. The bags can nicely be stored in the freezer for up to 3-4 months.
  • To thaw the soup, remove it from the freezer the night before serving, or put the sealed soup bag in warm water to thaw it faster.
  • Heat in a soup pan and simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Recipe Tips:

  • You can use ground beef or ground sausage in this recipe. Also, if you decide to use sausage, you can use mild or hot, based on your own preference.
  • To save time, you can use pre-minced store-bought garlic or garlic paste. I always keep organic garlic paste on hand and use it in recipes. Use more or less, based on your preference.
  • Add more or fewer veggies upon discretion. I like to add carrots and bell pepper, but a cup of zucchini would work great as well.
  • In addition, for a spicier version, add more red pepper flakes.
  • You can use veggie broth or chicken broth.
  • The soup uses a lot of Italian spices, if you don’t have some on hand you can skip some. If you have an Italian Seasoning blend, just use 1 1/2 tablespoons.
  • Using high quality canned tomatoes is very important as they will give flavor to the broth. I love San Marzano tomatoes, they taste sweet and fresh, also you can buy the ones that have been fire-roasted or have been flavored with basil and garlic.

Tools/Ingredients used to make this Recipe:

  • Instant Pot – I use it all the time, either the Pressure Cooker function or the Slow Cooker function, I also like that I can just sauté / brown the meat and veggies directly in the pot using the Sauté function.

The pasta sucks up a lot of the broth from the soup, so the leftovers will be thicker. If you prefer the soup more brothy, when you are reheating it, add some broth and bring it to a light simmer.

Short version: Thank you for the great recipe! I was not trying to change much but panicked after adding more meat. Ricotta on top was great. Long version: I made this tonight and it's really good! I made one change based on our preference, which was to use a pound of beef and a pound of Italian sausage (to make it more like our usual pasta). I fretted about overfilling the Instant Pot, I have the 6qt model. So the other changes were only to attempt and accommodate this. I did not add both cups of water, but did 4 cups of chicken broth as called for. We also had like 3/4 of a small can of tomato paste just sitting in the fridge so I added that too. It really did not seem to need the extra cup of water, it was not AS soupy but was still pretty good n' juicy. We did 1/2 box of noodles and then shoved in a few more. I think they should probably be broken up a tiny bit smaller as they seemed harder to eat, but they were perfectly done. No problems with being too full, just kept my eye on the max fill line and it was fine! I'll make this again for sure! The last thing we did that made it super tasty (to us) was add a dollop or two of ricotta cheese on top of the bowl as it was served. Mmmm, that was good. It melts in and makes it a bit creamier, and tastes just like lasagna.


Hi Jamie, thank you for the detailed comment :) loved your take with ricotta, I should try it too!



Ack! I went over the max fill line and I haven't added everything yet, what do I do?


What is the size of your IP?



Do you pressure cook setting or soup setting??


pressure cook on high.

Just made this for dinner, so good, my one year old and husband both liked it too! I will definitely be making it again, I think I will sneak in a few more veggies next time!



Made this yesterday. Had to use what I found in my pantry. So I used 1 can of Rotel. 1 can of garlic roasted diced tomatoes and for sauce I used a jar of Marinara sauce. I didn't have a fresh bell pepper so just used frozen pepper strips. No carrots because the pepper strips had sweet peppers in it too. Other than that followed exact same quantities and instructions. Turned out so perfect. Hubby loved it.

This looks absolutely delicious! Yummy!



Perfect dinner for a busy school night or just when you're craving comfort food!



made this last night... maybe not the perfect time of year to be making since it was still like low 90's last night... but we had the A/C running so I think that is okay right? Anyways... this was sooooo good!!!! and sooo easy... the only thing I would have changed was breaking the lasagna pasta a little smaller than breaking them in half. I would have done maybe break them in 4's. THE FLAVOR WAS ALLL THERE!!!



This was delish! To take it up a level, when it was done, I topped it with cheese in an oven safe bowl and put it in the oven on broil! It melts the cheese and gets you that melty cheese taste we all love lasagna for! Will definitely be making this again


Glad you enjoyed it. It is one of our favorite IP soups as well!

Very delicious. I would say break up the lasagna noodle by more than half. Kind of hard to eat.
