TIPS FOR MAKING INSTANT POT ALFREDO LAZY LASAGNA:
- Most Lazy Lasagna recipes are made with ricotta cheese, but it’s not a favorite in our house so I omitted it for this recipe. If you would like to add, feel free to do so – 1 cup. You will to add after the pressure cooking process when you add the Parmesan cheese.
- This recipe is loaded with flavor! I used dried basil because that’s what I had in the pantry, but you can also use fresh basil, as well. Also be sure to add the fresh basil when you add the Parmesan cheese.
- As mentioned above, if you like veggies, this Lazy Lasagna is a great way to get the family to add a few greens with dinner. I recommend spinach, kale, zucchini, squash – or all of them 🙂
INGREDIENTS FOR INSTANT POT ALFREDO LAZY LASAGNA
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 pound shredded chicken (I used frozen shredded chicken for reference)
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1/2 medium onion, chopped
- 2 14.5 ounce jars Alfredo sauce (I used a four cheese sauce for reference. Any brand of your choice will do.)
- 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
- 1/2 tablespoon garlic pepper
- 3 tablespoon of dried Basil or 1/4 cup fresh Basil
- 12 ounce lasagna noodles, broken in half or thirds
- 3 cups chicken broth
- Pinch of red pepper flakes
- Salt to taste
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT LAZY LASAGNA:
- Turn on your Instant Pot and select the ‘Saute’ function on high.
- Add olive oil and onion and saute until browned.
- Add garlic and saute for an additional 1-2 minutes.
- Select the ‘Cancel’ button to turn off the Instant Pot and reset the cooking function.
- Add Alfredo sauce, garlic pepper, basil, red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, salt, shredded chicken, chicken broth and lasagna noodles.
- NOTE: When you add the lasagna noodles, be sure to add them in a criss-cross motion. Doing so will help the noodles from sticking together. Also, as you are adding the noodles, try to press as much of the noodles under the borth as possible.
- Select the ‘Pressure Cook’ function and cook on high for 3 minutes.
- Once the timer beeps, quick release all pressure then carefully remove the lid.
- Stir contents to break up the pasta and combine all ingredients well.
- Add Parmesan cheese and stir again until contents are well combined.
Serve, top with more shredded Parmesan cheese and enjoy!!
