I never knew whether this was an Italian
regional thing (as in where in Italy
your family came from) or an American
regional thing (as in where in this
country they settled), or a generational thing,
or because "gravy" sounded more American
to people who wanted to assimilate.
I'm not Italian so I can't really weigh in, but
my in-laws were Sicilian—and not one woman in
that family would have been caught dead
serving it from a jar no matter what you call it!
