Lasagna Heaven in the Instant Pot

Found a recipe for a traditional lasagna made in the instant pot so I thought I’d Keto it.

Tasted great but when I make it again I will flash fry the courgette for a few mins to soften it a bit as it was a little too al dente for me.

Not worked out the carbs yet but will add as soon as I’ve done it.
