Once pot is hot, add sausage, ground beef and onion and saute until browned.
Add garlic and mushrooms and stir.
Add seasoning and pasta sauce. Stir well. Be sure to use your spoon or spatula to scrape the bottom of the pot to remove the browned bits of meat.
Add broth and water-do not stir.
Add pasta by breaking in half or thirds and stacking in a criss cross pattern.
Set Ninja Foodi to Pressure cook function on high for 3 minutes, close the lid and move valve to seal position.
If you are using different pasta follow these instructions: When cooking pasta in the Ninja Foodi, feel free to modify the pasta from the recipe. If you like bowties- go for it. If you like penne- go for it. The trick is to look at the cooking times on the box. Whatever the box says- cut it in half and subtract 2 minutes. So, if the box says to cook for 10 minutes, you will cut that in half (5) and subtract 2. Altogether you would cook for 3 minutes.
When timer beeps, quick release pressure and then remove lid.
Add in ricotta cheese and stir.
Add in Parmesan cheese and stir.
Add in basil and stir.
Add in mozzarella cheese and stir.
It's time to eat! Enjoy!
Be sure to crisscross the pasta when you add it. Crisscrossing it helps eliminate the possibility of the pasta sticking together and cooking unevenly.
If possible, try to use fresh basil. Fresh herbs have a much fresher taste and texture than dried herbs.
If your family doesn't like mushrooms (it's a tricky vegetable for some!) you can omit it without altering any other part of the recipe. If you are feeling a bit more daring, you can even add in some spinach. This little addition will taste like spinach lasagna! :)
Don't get the dreaded "burn" notice. I have never gotten this with my Ninja Foodi but have seen it on my Instant Pot. To ensure that nothing burns, be sure to deglaze the pan after browning the meat. Do so by scraping the bottom of the pot with your spoon or spatula to make sure that all of the cooked bits of meat are not stuck to the bottom. Also, do not stir once you have added the pasta. If you do, there is a chance that the pasta will get stuck to the bottom of the pot.
