Boil a pot of water. Break each lasagna noodle into three pieces and cook the pasta according to package instructions. Stir often to help prevent pasta pieces from sticking together. Once cooked, drain and rinse with cold water. Peel apart any pieces that have stuck together.
In a skillet over medium high heat, add cooking oil, onion, and garlic. Cook until onions become translucent. Add in the ground beef and cook until beef is no longer pink.
Stir in the italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Pour the jar of pasta sauce in and mix everything together. Reduce heat to let simmer for 3-4 minutes.
Add in ricotta cheese and the cooked pasta pieces. Mix everything together and let simmer an additional °2-3 minutes.
Sprinkle the top of the skillet with mozzarella cheese and chopped parsley (optional). Let simmer for 1-2 more minutes to help cheese melt. Remove from heat and scoop onto plates to serve.
