Turn Instant Pot to SAUTE mode. When the display reads ‘Hot,’ add the minced chicken. Stir occasionally.
Cook for 3-4 minutes or until you can’t see any pink in the chicken.
Add the onion, garlic and cook for a couple of minutes, until the onions turn translucent.
Next add the diced tomatoes, followed by crushed tomatoes. Mix to combine. Make sure, to scrape the browned bits on the bottom of the insert to prevent a burn warning.
Stir in the spices. Mix to combine. Pour in the chicken broth.
Stir in the lasagna noodles. Gently mix the noodles. Turn the Instant pot ‘Off.’
Secure the lid and seal the pot. Press the Manual (pressure cook) button and cook the soup on High Pressure for 5 minutes with the pressure valve in sealing position. It will take about 10-15 minutes for the pressure to build. After that, the countdown timer will start.
Once the cooking time has elapsed, turn off the pressure cooker. Allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then do a quick pressure release.
When the pin drops, carefully open the lid and gently stir everything together.
Adjust the seasonings, if needed. I prefer a thick soup but feel free to adjust the soup to the consistency you enjoy.
Topping: In a separate bowl combine the shredded parmesan, mozzarella, and crushed red pepper flakes. Set it aside.
Ladle the hot soup into a big bowl, sprinkle with some topping👆 , add some fresh basil leaves and devour! Serve immediately. If allowed to sit for long, the lasagna noodles will absorb all the delicious soup.
To make it a complete meal, pair it with homemade garlic knots or focaccia bread.
