Drain well. Step 2: Meanwhile, cut corn kernels from cob. Set aside. Combine the cornflour and extra 60ml (1/4 cup) milk until smooth. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion, cook stirring occasionally, for 34 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and lemon rind, cook stirring for 1 minute. Add the corn kernels and cornflour mixture, stir to combine, then gradually add the remaining milk, stirring until all the milk has been added and the sauce thickens. Add the tuna, parsley, pasta and broccoli, stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Step 3: Preheat grill on high. Transfer the mixture to 4 x 500ml (2 cup) capacity ovenproof dishes. Combine the parmesan and breadcrumbs, sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture evenly over the pasta. Place ramekins under preheated grill and grill for 2 minutes, or until breadcrumbs are golden and crisp.

It may be more than youd be willing to pay for a wine than somebody else. These wines represent value in their own way. ROBERT STEIN, WHITE LABEL, RIESLING, 2020 After two years of drought and fires in Mudgee, this was made during the COVID-19 ravaged vintage to help the family business survive. Lime cordial, soft rosewater hints, lemon freshness and green apple with fine focus. Below par from this winery, but a valuable release nonetheless.
