What to use instead of ground beef?
If you do not have beef or want to try something new, go then with ground sausages, brats, pork, or any other protein source. Make sure you brown the meat as this will make or break the lasagna soup.
Do I need lasagna sheets?
Lasagna sheets are basically made from the same ingredients as the pasta. So If you do not have a lasagna sheet you can use any pasta type you like, even spaghetti!
Which herbs to use?
For this Instant Pot Lasagna Soup recipe you can use any herbs you usually use when making lasagna.
You can use basil, oregano, thyme, and rosemary. Still, when mixing herbs, do not pair more than three types of herbs. Instead of mild and alluring flavor, you will end up with the herb garden in your mouth.

Instantly Delicious Instant Pot Lasagna Soup

I've never made lasagna soup before so I'm wondering why there Isn't cheese included in this recipe. Is it usually made with cheese? I actually don't mind the no cheese part, I'm just curious.
It would affect the texture which is why I don't add it in. But this soup would be delicious to top with mozzarella or Parmesan cheese after it's done! Then you'd get even more of a lasagna feel.
Corrie I did not see any mention of how many Bay Leaves in the ingredients list, but it mentions taking the bay leaves out once it has cooked.
Thank you for mentioning! They are totally optional, but I will edit the recipe to reflect that.
Can this be made in a Crock Pot?
Yes, it can! It will take much longer though, about 6-8 hours. And you'd probably want to add the noddles towards the end of that so they won't overcook.
Are the cans of tomato sauce 8 ounce or 15 ounce?
Great question! 15 oz. standard cans same as the diced tomatoes.
Hi Corrie, woulditwork with meat free mince asIam vegetarian. The normal pasta sauce does, so I am thinking this will to. But your thoughts would be nice to know.
It would absolutely! 🙂
I am intrigued with your recipe. I would like to try it but I try to stick with recipes that provide the nutritional content data. However, I may give it a try. But I would appreciate and use much more if you could provide that data for your users! Thank you!
Good to know, thank you for your input. I will consider that if I have more time in the future. I believe there are some online resources that you could enter the recipe and it will calculate the nutritional data for you if you are interested.
My whole family loved this!
I used Italian sausage instead of hamburger and I used bone broth (bc of the extra protein) instead of just regular broth
So happy you like it 🙂 Bone broth sounds like a great option!
Hi Corrie, could you please give the size of the cans of tomato products? Thanks, I look forward to trying the recipe.
