1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp garlic salt
onion chopped
16 ounces ricotta cheese
1 egg
tsp garlic
⅓ cup Parmesan Cheese
3 cups Marinara Sauce or spaghetti sauce
3 cups Marinara Sauce

1. Turn instant pot to saute, add olive oil and ground beef or sausage, brown and break into small bites.

Break up oven-ready lasagna noodles to fit to cover the bottom of the baking pan. Top with half the ricotta cheese mixture. Sprinkle with half the meat and onion mixture. Cover the meat mixture with marinara sauce then sprinkle a light layer of mozzarella cheese. Add layer of noodles, breaking to fit in a single layer. Top with remaining ricotta cheese mixture. Sprinkle with remaining meat mixture. Top with another layer of marinara sauce and sprinkle with a light layer of mozzarella cheese. Add the final layer of lasagna noodles. Top with a generous layer of tomato sauce. Sprinkle generously with shredded Mozzarella Cheese.
8. Cover top with a foil tent.

Personal Notes:
If you are not worried about condensation forming on the top of your lasagna, cook without foil cover and deduct 5 minutes from cook time. Lightly dab off any moisture that occurs and then broil to perfection!
