Sauce is to be served seperately, this allows you to dictate how much you would like to drown your pasta.

Always option 1 even if the sauce is bought premade.

Te No Kage is 100% correct.
Both of you are wrong, but J-Lau is more wrong than Brand.And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

Difference between "Sauce" and "Gravy" is the fact that "Gravy" has meat in that was cooked along with the ingredients or broth.
I say it's depending on the pasta, I defenitly wouldn't throw ravioli in a pot of sauce/gravy. I don't have a technical reason other than it just doesn't seem right, but on the other hand I think that's how tortellini should be served.
But going with your standard noode like Spaghetti, Rotini, Fettuccine, and Penne, they need to be marinated in the sauce/gravy before serving... and if you have a friend/family member that doesn't like marinara sauce they should be disposed of promptly ;)Apu: "Oh! You have just been Apu'd!"

After an unbelieveably long treatise on various pastas, sauces, and regional cooking techniques, The Wastrel left me with this:
I guess if you spend a lot of time eating at buffets option 2 seems reasonable.
