Italian Word of the Day - Gravy

Gravy. You pour it over macaroni. It's what's for dinner. And the gravy company even translated the label. Gravy. Italian style pasta sauce.

Ma and the aunties made the gravy for the week on Sundays. Since Ma worked, she'd make her gravy in large batches. Some to use and the rest frozen. In the big freezer in the cellar, there would be (recycled before we had the word) Dragone Ricotta cheese containers filled with gravy. Sometimes, the Dragone containers would be filled with chicken stock.
