Every day, we’re showered with recipe requests by A+J Fans. Unsurprisingly, Lasagna often tops the charts! 😀

You’ve spoken, and we’ve listened!

Garfield and I share one thing in common: Lasagna is our love language.

His obsession for Lasagna might have been the original source, the first seed that was planted in my 5-year old foodie heart. 😛

Who knew it’d blossom into this lifelong love affair with this heavenly Middle Ages Italian culinary creation?

Garfield Lasagna

Whenever we eat out, we try our best to order a dish we’ve never tasted before. But every time we visit an Italian restaurant, I simply couldn’t resist the temptation to taste their expression of this glorious culinary work of art.

The rich multitude layers of sweet-savory-tart-umami flavors and chewy-creamy-gooey-cheesy-toothsome bites.

Each inviting slice of heaven is so indescribably comforting & satisfying.

It’s time to make Mouthwatering Lasagna in Instant Pot!! 😀

I am kicking myself for waiting so long to try this. I love lasagna but making it was tricky because of the time it took to prepare and cook but no more!!! I couldn’t believe how quick and easy it was to put together, and it came to pressure within a few minutes which was an added bonus. I felt compelled to send pictures to my friends to show the result…amazing, gooey lasagna! Before we even finished eating I was plotting how soon I could make it again. Next time I’m going to split the meat 1/2 beef and 1/2… Read more »

Awesome recipe. I added a little bit of whole milk to the ricotta mixture only because I hate ricotta cheese and it makes it to where I can eat it. I made it in a Crock-Pot Express XL 8qt5 stars

Hi, I am planning on making this recipe for the first time with my sister but we do not have a spring pan for the instant pot mini. Is there another way to make it?

This was one of the first recipes I tried in my Instant pot. My family and I love lasagna. When I received the springform pan, I immediately thought it was pretty small and this lasagna wasn’t feeding my family of 4. The recipe was easy to follow and the lasagna came out great! I’ve never used the no boil noodles, so I didn’t know what to expect. I made it first just for my husband and I, we had leftovers. Made it a second time, along with a salad and it fed all 4 of us perfectly! Will definitely be… Read more »

What happened to my original comment ? You changed it! I didn’t have good results on my third try and asked why, after making it like I did previously.

Terri D Konas

I used exactly same pasta ,etc. Cooked same way. But this time some noodles were crunchy or chewy and it was liquidy. Why would that happen onnmy third try ?

Mary

They only answer positive things….I’ve asked numerous of theses sites and don’t even get response….only like compliments.

Absolutely love this recipe, but I do find I have to cook it for about 70 minutes instead of the 24 for my “oven ready” noodles to cook. I use a fat daddio pan, so maybe it’s just too thick to cook in the 24m? Either way, I’ll make this again and again and again!5 stars

I made this recipe just as directed except for adding hamburger. It was moist and very tasty. I followed directions exactly and it was done perfectly. I didn’t skimp on the time. I have the Instant Pot Mini which can be a challenge because most recipes are made for the 6 qt. I made the the entire recipe and made one for dinner and a second one which I froze. Amy & Jacky thank for assisting me in finding a springform pan. It was perfect.5 stars

This lasagna was delicious and easy! Noodles cooked, perfect amount of cheese and meat from the sauce! Only downfall I had was mine had so much sauce (or moisture) that when I released it from the pan, it flattened! Haha. Looked more like a wet burrito!! But still tasted like an amazing lasagna! I think next time I use less sauce? Any pointers on helping it keep its form and not turn into a puddle of yumminess?5 stars
