US Customary - Metric


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 jar marinara sauce 25 ounces
  • 8 ounces mozzarella sliced


  • On sauté setting, brown the ground beef with the garlic and onion.
  • While the meat is browning, combine the ricotta cheese with the Parmesan and egg in a small mixing bowl. 
  • Drain grease and remove meat mixture from Instant Pot.
  • In a medium size bowl mix meat mixture with 25 ounce jar of marinara (reserve ½ c for the top).
  • Next, using a round dish that fits within your Instant Pot (A spring form pan with aluminum foil to catch any drippings works) layer half of your lasagna meat, mozzarella and ricotta cheese mixture repeating for a second time until no ingredients remain. Top with ½ c of reserved marinara sauce.
  • Place sling in Instant Pot along with 1 c of water.
  • Set dish in instant pot.
  • Attach lid and cook on high pressure for 9 minutes.
  • Vent steam, remove the lid and serve.


Since so many comments noted that the lasagna burned in their pot, the recipe has changed to use the pot in pot (PIP) method rather than cook directly in the pot. 
However, the issue with burning is if there isn’t enough liquid in the pot when cooking under pressure. So a “watery” sauce is what’s needed to keep the lasagna from burning if you don't want to use the PIP method. Extra sauce should also prevent burning for those wanting to cook directly into the pot.
