Gino's rich meat sauce with penne and garlic bread

He’s been persuaded to put down his hose and give back the helmet - Gino has swapped the heat of the fire and rescue service for the pressure of the paramedics.

As an honorary member of the Scottish Ambulance Service, Gino’s spending the day on their emergency callouts before heading back to the station to cook them a well-earned meal of meat sauce with penne, fresh bread and homemade garlic butter.
