International » Italian Sunday Gravy
The Pallotta sisters Carla and Christine make an Italian-American traditional family meal known as "Sunday Gravy." For many Italian-American families, Sunday is a day of rest and gathering -- to the table for a family feast of assorted meats braised in marinara sauce ("gravy"). The Pallotta sisters' Sunday Gravy boasts braciole (thinly-sliced beef) stuffed with pine nuts, golden raisins, cheese and spices. They also make their favorite pork and beef meatballs. Just as you think this sounds like enough meat, the sisters brown up baby back pork ribs and sausage links to throw into their Classic Marinara sauce to simmer and cook as well. No one will be going hungry with this hearty meal! As mama would say, "mangia, mangia!"
