The Ultimate Lasagne Pie - a firm family favourite that can be cooked in the Instant Pot or an oven.
All over Instant Pot groups, I keep seeing delicious pictures of Lasagne's being cooked in the Instant Pot.
I just had to give it a go, especially as I had just made this yummy Best Ever Bolognese Sauce.
I used the basics of my Yummy Beef Lasagne for the white sauce because that lasagne is just out of this world. I can't even contemplate a lasagne with a yoghurt, egg or quark topping, for me lasagne has to have proper white sauce.
So how do you cook this Lasagne Pie in an Instant Pot? it's pretty easy really and all you need is an 7-inch springform pan (like this one on Amazon). I recommend a springform because it will be easier to remove once cooked and plate up to slice and it can't be any bigger than 7inches because it won't fit in the instant pot. But wait for it, this lasagne cooks in just 15 mins, with about 5 or so minutes under the grill just to brown that lovely cheese topping.
Wondering what an Instant Pot is? (check it out on Amazon). It's a 7in1 cooker, and it slow cooks, pressure cooks, saute's, has settings for soup, chilli, rice, porridge and even makes yoghurt (I haven't tried that yet). Things that would normally take hours can be cooked in minutes. So its great for batch cooking days, when you want to get some tubs of prepared meal frozen.
For the meat sauce, I use this Best Ever Bolognese Sauce, I haven't included the cooking time for that in this recipe, as I am giving measurements for the meat sauce already cooked.
The Lasagne Pie looks fantastic when you finally remove it from the springform pan to serve it up. lovely depth and so delicious. My kids literally cleared their plates, both of them, while commenting on how good it tasted. When you hear your kids say that kind of thing, you know you are onto a winner, right?
How can I add a vegetables to this Lasagne Pie?
Serve alongside a delicious mixed salad of crisp lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes. I just served the Lasagne Pie with some salad as it's pretty filling, but you could always do some Chips too or take the vegetables even further with these Butternut Squash Chips.
