In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, garlic, and tripe and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the marinara sauce and bring to a boil. Stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes. Spoon the tripe and sauce for about 15 to 20 minutes.
