Hm. Maybe regional, maybe Italian... cuz yeah, I would just call that tomato sauce or spaghetti sauce (tomato sauce is plainer to me, spaghetti sauce usually has the herbs and seasoning). Closest I have come to seeing anything with tomato "gravy" is sometimes people will make a meatloaf that way... but I prefer my meatloaf with the best topping of all: bacon.
