I share my grocery store with our local firemen. They park the engine out front, stock up on food for the firehouse and then get on their way…unless of course they get a call midway through their shopping trip.

A few weeks ago, that’s what happened. My son was trying to impress the firemen by taking a bite out of a block of cheese…through the wrapper…and then putting it back, right in front of them. Right as we all realized what was happening their radios started buzzing. They hustled their carts to the deli and they were outta there. I guess the cart is pushed into the walk-in refrigerator until they can return later in the day.

Yes, we bought the cheese.

When I came across this recipe in Grandma Joyce’s collection I couldn’t help but imagine those guys heading back to the firehouse after their busy day and enjoying a big helping of Chief Jim Neal’s Pasta Sauce. Before they get called out for another busy night, of course!

Stir them occasionally. They’ll cook themselves so you don’t want to over stir. Next up…wine and worcestershire.

Boil the noodles. The sauce can easily be taken off the heat for a few minutes if the noodles are taking their time.
