Quick Ravioli Lasagna (Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker)

Lasagna used to be a weekend dish for me, until, I made this weeknight twist on the classic- Quick Ravioli Lasagna. I call it Lazy Lasagna, because the only prep I need to do, is buy store-bought fresh Ravioli, cheese and marinara sauce. I assemble the lasagna and cook it in my programmable pressure cooker, Instant Pot DUO. And just like that, we have a delicious dinner ready, in a little over 30 minutes, with minimal effort (see instant pot FAQ to learn more).

Pasta Sauce

I often doctor the store bought marinara sauce, or make it from scratch by adding veggies and ground meat to it. I make a big batch of this sauce and keep it in the freezer. It comes in handy to make lasagnas, a simple pasta dinner, base sauce for a quick pizza, or even for making my meatball subs for dinner or parties. Here is the RECIPE for PASTA SAUCE. But in this recipe, you can use your favorite brand of plain marinara sauce as well.

What do you make Instant Pot Ravioli Lasagna in?

I use a spring-form pan for this recipe. I make it in my Instant Pot DUO and it fits a 7-inch spring form pan. After cooking, you can release the spring-form and cut the lasagna like a pie. You can also make it in any oven-safe baking dish that you have.

Traditional Lasagna:

Traditionally, Lasagna refers to a dish made with several layers of a flat noodle pasta with tomato or cream based sauces and other ingredients, such as meats, cheese or vegetables. When I make a traditional Lasagna, I typically make two kinds of  fillings. One layer of filling is  sautéed spinach & crimini mushrooms with onions, garlic, and Italian seasoning.  The second layer is browned ground meat and spicy Italian sausage, or, if I am making a vegetarian Lasagna, then I oven-roast red and yellow bell-peppers, fennel and onions. I use store-bought marinara sauce  and Barilla’s no-boil lasagna noodles for layering. 55 minutes or so in the oven, and we have ourselves a pan of delicious lasagna. I use this recipe a lot whenever I am entertaining a big crowd. 

Customize it

When making the Quick Ravioli Lasagna, I use spinach & ricotta ravioli, but you can customize it and use your favorite flavor of ravioli. This recipe can be adjusted to make individual portions too. You can use 8 oz ramekins cups in the Instant pot.
