Okay all, what do you call it, gravy or sauce? I tend to use both of them, but coming from an Italian background, I say gravy because sometimes we have gravy meat (meatballs, sausage, pork etc)that we put into the gravy. I say sauce when I'm usually at a restaurant or something like that. I don't know haha. I guess its being home that gets me into the sauce mood. What do you call it?

Well gravy is brown with a rich sweet taste and sauce comes in many flavours like tomato, etc all the best urban

When it is like for spaghetti or to dip something in I say sauce, I only say gravy for stuff like what you put on top of chicken fried steaks.

Your mention of meatballs made me want some. Where the heck am I supposed to get meatballs at 6:30 AM on a Sunday morning in the middle of a cold Canadian winter? AARRGGHH!!!! If it's on a roast I tend to call it gravy, if it's on meatballs or on pasta or anything else I call it sauce.
