  2. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the olive oil and sauté the garlic for 1 minute. Stir in the tuna and sauté for another minute.
  3. Add the wine to the skillet and bring to a boil. After lowering the heat, add the cottage cheese mixture and bring to a serving temperature, but be careful not to let it boil.
