Consider frying an onion before hand. Then once the noodles are cooked you can stirfry the noodles/pasta with the onion to get some Maillard reaction going. Poor gravy on after and enjoy.

As a Uni student I can't afford a decent meal all the time. I have both pasta and gravy in my cupboard currently so I'm gonna try this. Maybe add some chicken or some herbs to glam it up a bit but such a good idea!

THis came to desperation as I had nothing in the cupboard. Really really nice! Used egg noodles and onion gravy. Nice!

Its better if you use diced beef and actually cook the pasta in the beef gravy add onions and small carrots best with bowtie pasta

gravy IS a sauce, so it wouldnt just act like a sauce, it would be a sauce. i would suggest not calling it straight gravy, because it sounds vile, call it, a gravy reduction sauce, that way you still get the point, but not the nasty thought of gravy alone. also, this dish has no sustenance, add meat and frozen veggies or something, that way its still economical, but its actually a meal and not a pathetic excuse for a side dish.

This is also REALLY good if you add some chopped tomatoes :)
Especially good when they're warm and soft-ish.
