What Do I need To Make Instant Pot Lasagna?

You’ll need to add water to your pressure cooker, so this recipe will be prepared in a baking dish that you place inside of the pressure cooker pot.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: When I wrote this recipe and took the how-to-photos of me making it, there were no Instant Pot gadgets or pots. Now, I would recommend you get this –> Instant Pot Cake Pan. It’s is a smaller pan that fits inside of your Instant Pot. The 7″ pan works with the 8 qt Instant Pot. It’s great for making dishes like this lasagna where you don’t want the liquid touching the food.

Ground Turkey Instant Pot Lasagna Recipe

Turkey Instant Pot Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasonings
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and red-pepper flakes to taste
  • 15 oz. container ricotta
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella, shredded
  • 1 – 10 oz package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 6-9 oven-ready lasagna noodles, broken to fit a round baking dish
  • 1 large jar chunky pasta sauce
  • 1 cup water

Directions for How To Make Turkey lasagna 

Mix ricotta, 1 cup mozzarella and spinach in a bowl. Add salt and fresh ground pepper.

Coat the bottom of an oven-safe cake pan that will fit inside of your pressure cooking pot with a spoonful of pasta sauce.

NOTE: Do not use a glass dish… now I recommend using this–> steel cake pan

Add a layer of the noodles. Break the edges so they will fit inside of the round dish. Now add half of the meat mixture over the noodles. Pour half the pasta sauce over the noodles and spread half of the cheese mixture on top.

Repeat the layers, and top with the rest of the mozzarella cheese. Cover the baking dish with foil.

How to Prepare the Instant Pot For Cooking

Pour 1 cup water into the pressure cooker pot and place a trivet or pot lifter in the bottom of the Instant Pot’s inner pot. If you don’t have a trivet to lift the pan out of the hot pressure cooker, make a sling out of of a large foil strip.

Center the cake pan on the trivet or foil strip and lower it into the pressure cooker’s inner pot.

Lock the lid in place. Select High Pressure and set the timer for 20 minutes.

When timer goes off, turn off the pressure cooker and turn the steam release valve to “venting” to release the pressure. When the pressure valve drops, remove lid and remove dish from pressure cooking pot.

Remove foil, let set for 3-5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

  1. So this was delicious, but I to cook mine for 35 minutes for the noodles to get soft (and I used oven-ready, no-boil lasagna noodles. After 20 minutes they were still crunchy, so I put it back in for another 15 and then had success. My IP is the DUO60 and I had to use an 8-inch springform pan for the lasagna (yes, it was practically overflowing, but it worked!). Anyway, I would make this again, but now I know that in my IP, 35 minutes is necessary.

  2. This was absolutely delish! I’m going to make it again soon and I’m sharing it with my IP friends! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh my gosh, this was so good! I added more red pepper flakes because we like our food spicy. Great Instant Pot recipe!

  4. Can you tell me…what size Instant Pot and glass bowl did you use? My 1.5 quart bowl fits in my Instant Pot, but I’m afraid it won’t be big enough.

  5. This looks awesome and so does the Instant Pot Banana French Toast! There are so many recipes out there using the Instant Pot, I’d love one of my own!

  6. I re-entered with fourkidstwocats at msn dot com
    Your recipe looks great. I hope I win the instantpot so I can make it!
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  7. AAAAHH I think my computer glitched when I filled out the entry for the instant pot. If fourcatstwocats at msn dot com was listed, it should be fourkidstwocats at msn dot com.
    Thanks for the chance to win!
