This recipe doesn't require boiling the pasta prior to assembling the lasagna. Also, the cottage cheese mixture is easier to spread than ricotta. So while it's not "authentic" lasagna, you still get great flavors with a LOT less work.
You can also prepare the lasagna up to the baking point and then cover and freeze it for future use. If you do this, thaw it overnight and then bake it 60-75 minutes to make sure it gets hot through.
