Rainy days are perfect for soup! Soup is comforting and it also is an affordable way to feed the family. I make this lasagna soup in my Instant Pot. It is quick and easy. It can also be made on the stove. If you don’t have an Instant Pot don’t let that hold you back.
- 1 lb Italian Sausage (you can use any kind of ground meat, the Italian sausage gives it so much flavor.)
- 2 T Olive Oil
- 1/2 Large Onion Diced
- 2-3 Chopped Garlic Cloves
- 4-5 Lasagna Noodles Broken in Pieces
- 4 C Chicken Broth
- 2 Cans Diced Tomatoes
- 2 T Tomato Paste
- 2 Bay Leaves
- 1 t Oregano
- 1 t Basil
- Crushed Red Pepper to taste
- 1/2 t Salt
- 1/2 t Pepper
Set Instant Pot to Sauté. Add olive oil, sausage, onions and garlic. Chop until meat is brown. Drain fat if any.
Add tomato paste and all seasonings.
Stir for about two minutes.
Turn off Sauté and add broth and tomatoes. Make sure you scrape any bits off the bottom. Add Bay Leaves.
Break four to five lasagna noodles into pieces right into the pot.
Give it a quick stir and place the lid on top.
Set to sealing
Set manual time for five minutes. It will take a few minutes for it to come to pressure. I let it naturally release for about ten minutes. Release the vent in case of any extra steam. Watch hands and face.
This soup is amazing served with ricotta cheese and Parmesan on top. Fresh basil is great too if you have it. It pairs great with garlic toast.
