Ingredients for Instant Pot Ground Beef Lazy Lasagna

Ingredients Needed For This Instant Pot Ground Beef Lazy Lasagna Recipe:

  • Ground beef
  • Garlic powder
  • Italian seasoning
  • Bow tie pasta
  • Beef broth
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Sour cream 
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese

How To Make This Instant Pot Ground Beef Lazy Lasagna Recipe:

Begin by getting out your Instant Pot, plugging it in, and pressing the SAUTE button to turn on the Instant Pot. 

Once it reads hot on the screen, add in the ground beef, garlic powdered, and Italian seasoning. 

Cooke Ground Beef in the Instant Pot

Cook everything together until the beef is no longer pink. Then, if you want to, drain the grease (or leave it in for extra flavor).

Then, with the browned ground beef in the bottom of the Instant Pot, pour the uncooked bow tie noodles on top and spread it all around. 

Next, pour the beef broth over the noodles, covering as much of the noodles as possible. You can push the noodles down to try and keep them covered. 

Spaghetti sauce over uncooked noodles and ground beef in Instant Pot

Lastly, pour the spaghetti sauce on top of the pasta and beef broth, but DO NOT mix it together. 

PRO TIP: By not mixing the spaghetti sauce into everything else will help avoid getting the burn notice. 

Now, place the lid on top of the Instant Pot, making sure to turn the valve to the SEALING position. 

Once the lid is in place, press the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK button and set the timer for 4 minutes. 

After the timer runs out, do a quick release of the pressure by turning the valve to the VENTING position. 

When the pin drops down, all of the pressure has been released and you can take off the lid. 

Sour cream and mozzarella added to Instant Pot Ground Beef Lazy Lasagna

Now, stir in the sour cream and mozzarella, and mix it all together until the sour cream and cheese are completely melted and smooth. 

Spoon the lasagna onto a plate and top it off with Parmesan cheese and freshly chopped basil.
