Lasagna on the double!!

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.
