Strange....I've spent time in Italy, and it was called "Sauce". But hell, what do the Italians know. And yes, the places I went to were outside the tourist areas, so they weren't calling it sauce for my benefit. Maybe I only saw fake Italian's while I was in Italy.

Show me one authentic Italian menu, that show spaghetti "Gravy". It may be a slang word, but it's not common word that is used in Italy that I saw.

Excuse me? I'm 50% Italian, and my grandmother, who called it SAUCE, was STRAIGHT from ITALY.

Then again, Long Island is a different world than Manhattan and Brooklyn, and even upstate, bro.

I grew up in Illinois where gravy was something we put on our mashed potatoes. I moved to NJ and married an Italian and gravy is now homemade spagehtti sauce

Some people need to stop watching the Sopranos and thinking they know how NJ works.
Lived in Jersey until I was 30, Italian grandparents off the boat. I think I know NJ pretty well. The entire Italian side of my family called it gravy. Then again, I never had marinara at my granparents house, there was always meatballs, sausage, and bracciole in there, so hence it was called gravy, because of the massive amounts of meat in it.

100% Italian ancestory, born in Queens, grew up on Long Island...........it's Gravy, with or without meat. Also, it's macaroni, not pasta.

Ricotta is pronounced like reGORtha.

Motzarella is pronounced mutz-a-RELLA

There was NO SUCH THING, as "french bread" where I grew up. It's Italian beard, or it's Wonder Bread!
