Instant Pot® lasagne

    You might feel that making lasagne in a pressure cooker is crazy. Don't you need an oven for those crunchy edges? How do you know it is cooked through? How can anyone make lasagne without baking it? Well, trust me - this one is well worth making. If you have a 15cm or 18cm springform tin (or loose based cake tin) and you kept the trivet that came with your Instant Pot®, you can make a delicious layered lasagne in 30 minutes. And if you want to make it ahead, you can prep the lasagne and put it in the freezer, then put it right into the Instant Pot® for an easy dinner.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 450g lean beef mince
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 170g dried lasagne sheets that don’t require soaking, broken into large pieces

    • 225g soft goat cheese

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Extra time:10min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Turn on a multi-cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and the select Saute function. Heat olive oil; add beef mince and salt. Cook, breaking it up with a spatula, until thoroughly browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer beef to a bowl. Wash the pot and return it to the machine.
    2. Pour 350ml water into the pot. Set the metal trivet inside.
    3. Arrange lasagne pieces over the bottom of a 15cm springform tin. Ladle 1/3 of the tomato pasta sauce on top; add 1/3 of the cooked mince and 1/3 of the fresh spinach. Dollop 1/2 the mozzarella cheese on top. Repeat layers using 1/2 the goat cheese. Repeat once more, finishing with remaining mozzarella and goat cheese on top.
    4. Tent the top of the lasagna loosely with foil. Lower it gently onto the trivet. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 20 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build. Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 to 40 minutes. Unlock and remove lid.
    5. Set oven rack on top shelf and preheat the oven's grill.
    6. Transfer the springform tin carefully to a baking tray. Grill until cheese on top is lightly browned and bubbling, about 5 minutes.
