Instant Pot Farfalle Lasagna

Instant Pot Farfalle Lasagna

I love Lasagna, but making it from scratch takes forever, and while the store-bought kind tastes great it also has a ton of additives and takes over an hour of cooking time. This recipe is not only delicious but it’s easy, healthier, and quick!

  • Prep Time 10 minutes
  • Cook Time 20 minutes
  • Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1lb ground turkey
  • 1lb farfalle pasta
  • 28 ounces crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1/4 cup onions diced
  • 3 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp red crushed pepper
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp basil
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Process

  1. Add the oil to the instant pot and press the saute function. Add the onions and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and red crushed pepper and cook for around 30 seconds.
  2. Add the ground turkey, making sure to break it up while it’s cooking. I use a wooden spoon. Let the turkey cook until browned completely, this should take around 5 minutes. Make sure to stir frequently to avoid burning.
  3. Stir in the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, salt, and pepper.
  4. Add the crushed tomatoes and mix well. Place the farfalle pasta on top of the meat sauce and then add the 3 cups of water. Do not mix, else your Instant Pot may give a burn warning during the cooking process.
  5. Now you can cancel the saute mode, and place the lid on the Instant Pot, seal the valve, and press the “pressure cook” function. Set the timer for 3 minutes.
  6. Once cooking has completed perform a quick release. Pasta should be al dente.
  7. Now stir in 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, parsley, and parmesan cheese. Add additional salt and pepper if needed.
  8. Add the remaining mozzarella cheese on top of the pasta and cover the instant pot with the lid for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese melts.

You should now be able to dish up and serve!
