    Everyone in my Dego family called it GRAVY! We just knew what color it was by what the meal was. Spaghetti was red gravy, Roast beef was brown gravy.

    When I hear sauce I think of Bearnaise or Hollandaise, something that lightly covers a food. I don't know about you but I never have dipped a chunk of bread into a pot of Hollandaise sauce, but a simmering pot of gravy is a magnet for a chunk of fresh bread. :eat:

    My future SIL is Italian and her family refer to it as Gravy. I had to ask if she ment Gravy Gravy or sauce. I had no clue that was what they called it. :embarassed:
