Easy Variations

Check out some more ingredient specific variations that we suggested above in the recipe ingredients section!

Instant pot lasagna soup with bowtie pasta- trade out the classic lasagna noodles for some fun bowtie pasta noodles. Really you can choose whatever type of pasta you want and you'll get nice, tender noodles.

Short on fresh seasonings? You can use dried or powdered seasonings if needed, like garlic powder, dried parsley and could even add garlic salt.

Want heat? Add a dash or two of crushed red pepper flakes.

Want veggies? Add in a handful or two of fresh spinach, arugula, kale, cooked mushrooms, diced bell pepper, etc, once you've performed your pressure release and are about to add the cheese mixture.

Swap beef broth- if you want to, you can use chicken broth, vegetable broth, chicken stock or turkey broth and if absolutely necessary, you can use plain water.

Kitchen Tips & Tricks

  • Adjust the amount of beef broth you use as needed to help thin the soup out if necessary.
  • The cooking time of this recipe doesn't include the time it takes for your Instant Pot to come up to pressure or the time it takes to release the pressure. Be sure to allow extra time for both of those events.
  • Make sure you break your noodles into 1-inch pieces so they cook evenly and everyone can enjoy them in their soup bowls.
  • Make sure you perform a quick release of pressure, we suggest using a hand towel overtop the valve to keep from burning yourself on the steam being released.

How Do You Store Leftover Lasagna Soup?

We suggest storing your Pressure Cooker Lasagna soup in an air tight container, like a Mason Jar in the refrigerator.

How Long Does This Instant Pot Soup Last?

If stored properly, in an airtight container in the refrigerator, your leftover lasagna soup should last 4-5 days.

This soup tastes just as delicious later as it does when you first make it. In fact, it might even taste even more delicious as it's had longer time to mix the flavors together.

Can You Freeze This Soup?

You certainly can freeze this Instant Pot easy lasagna soup. The only questionable thing about freezing this soup, is the lasagna noodles. They'll change consistency when frozen and then reheated.

If you plan on freezing this soup for future use, we recommend waiting to add the noodles until you're ready to enjoy. In this case, we suggest cooking the lasagna noodles separately.

We also recommend waiting to add the cheese until later as well, for the same reasons.

This soup can be frozen up to 3 months. Make sure to add it to your freezer inventory printable and label it properly.

How Do You Reheat Instant Pot Soup?

If you're reheating this soup from the refrigerator, we recommend using a stovetop and saucepan to reheat until it reaches desired temperature.

If you're wanting to reheat from frozen, if possible, remove from freezer and store in refrigerator overnight to start the thawing process. Then reheat as instructed above.

How Do You Make Vegan Instant Pot Lasagna Soup?

If you're interested in Instant Pot Vegan Lasagna Soup, here are the modifications we recommend.

  • Omit ground beef and swap it for a "meat" variation of your choice
  • Swap the cheeses for dairy free versions.
  • Swap beef broth for vegetable broth and ensure that that's vegan friendly.
  • Double check all ingredients to ensure they're safe.

Is Instant Pot Lasagna Soup Healthy?

This soup recipe is slightly healthier than traditional full-fledge lasagna. In general this soup is a hearty, nutritious soup and can be altered to be more of a healthy soup with healthier meat choices, lighter on the cheese options and adding in more vegetables.
