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?

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.

Can I use regular lasagna noodles rather than the pre-cooked ones?

Greetings ladies! Planning to try this recipe soon. Your recipe calls for 2 layers, I’d like to try it w/3. Does anything need to change to accommodate a 3rd layer?

I made this Lasagna with hot italian sausage for my nephew. He is the most difficult person to cook for. He loved it. Asked me if I could make it every week!! Thank you Amy + Jacky!5 stars

Can I par boil regular lasagna noodles?

Can we had spinach or will that produce too much liquid in the pan? Also, would I need to buy noodles that say “oven-ready” on the box?

How many does this lasagne recipe serve?

I have an 8qt Duo and was wondering if I can make 2 of these at the same time, as in stacking two pans on top of the other. If so, would that change the cooking time?

This was the tastiest lasagna ever, but it was also the ugliest (that’s on me). Your sauce is the best (I literally ate a bowl of it by itself!). Have you ever made the lasagna in the oven? If so, what temp and how long? Thanks!5 stars

I remade this and looked much better. I just pulled the foil tighter and left it in the springform pan while serving. I did not need the parchment paper at all! No issues with sticking. I also increased ricotta cheese to 1 cup and used fresh mozz. Topped with extra parm before putting in the oven. Amazing!5 stars

This is, by far, my go-to site for Instant Pot recipes. Your umami flavor combo is excellent in all your umami recipes. I’ve even taken the basic concept and applied it to other recipes I’ve found elsewhere. The lasagne is perfect every time, and I love the sauce – both in the lasagne and as a pasta topping. This time around, I made the sauce without meat…we’ll see how it goes. Thank you for all your recipes and hard work. I enjoy reading how you test recipes and the tips you pass along. It’s a great site for Instant Pot… Read more »
