Heat a 12-inch high-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef until it browns, breaking up into small pieces. Drain beef and return to pan.
Add salt and pepper to taste and garlic powder, then pour all the marinara sauce and water into the skillet and bring to a simmer. As the sauce heats up, cut the lasagna sheets into two-inch squares and separate to prevent sticking while cooking.
When the sauce is bubbling, add the lasagna noodles and stir to cover. Cook and stir occasionally until noodles are cooked, approximately 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the mozzarella and Parmesan. Dollop ricotta on the top and serve piping hot!
