So, this last 24 hours I have been getting over a flu. Feeling down and out I didn’t do anything all day. But, when it came near supper time, the LAST think I wanted was greasy fast food. Luckily, I found a recipe for lasagna for the pressure cooker! Of course I had to modify it because I really wanted this glorious meal ready in a total time of about 15 or 20 minutes.
You can make your meat sauce home made (time consuming) or you can use a high quality jarred sauce. I happen to have my own home made meat sauce in jars from my pressure canner. Oh yes. Anyway, here we go.
Take 1 quart of meat sauce and put it in your cooker. Add in 10 strips of packaged lasagna pasta broke up into 2 inch strips. Add enough water to nicely cover your pasta. Now, I brought this to a gentle boil and let it simmer for about 5 min. Now, put the lid on your cooker and bring to pressure (low/8 lbs), cook for 6 minutes. Shut off heat, quick release pressure. Open the cooker, stir up the sauce and noodles and put them in an oven safe baking dish and add a nice layer of freshly grated mozzarella cheese. Put under your broiler on high for about 1 or 2 minutes.
This was surprisingly delicious. 15 minutes start to finish. Perfect.
