Poor man's lasagna with Radiatore

I make so many different kinds of lasagna, this one is so easy and kid friendly,  A quick and easy budget friendly dinner recipe made from scratch and full of great flavor. Delicious all in one pot Lasagna with Radiatore Noodles. Each little noodle retains sauce to perfection, making it the perfect comfort food. Add with buttery garlic bread to dip in the sauce and you have a home run with dinner tonight.

In a small bowl mix Ricotta Cheese, eggs, Parmesan, and Parsley (set aside)


Turn your saute on, and add oil, diced onion, diced mushrooms, hamburger and sausage cut into bite sized pieces. Saute till onions are almost translucent, and hamburger is almost done. 


Add Spaghetti Sauce, salt, pepper, diced tomatoes, (with juice) water, Place your lid on (make sure you are on sealing and not venting) Set your timer for 15 min high pressure, with an instant release


Add Ricotta Cheese (make your own) mixture, 1 cup of cheese, and mix well (let set 5 min so it gives the eggs time to cook in your Ricotta.
