Herbs are best suited for taking the edge off a sauce though, imo.

I use to work for a large herb and spice company and was erged to try it
1 it is so sweet that I hasatate to use it in any thing
2 it has a funky after taste I find quite nasty and repulsive
so leave it out of your tomato sauce and try the carrots, splenda, if all else failes try plain cain sugar

We have used dried stevia leaves as a sweetner for the herbal teas.But the comments from the patients about the taste is very bad.It has a very bad smoky taste after the diffussion.The green leaves has more of this.It is not easy to eat the fresh leaves because it is like you are chewing a tablet of artificial sweetner.
The result was very bad when we tried to make the Kheer(An Indian Sweet)with stevia as a sweetner.It was not at all palatable.
After all, it is as per your taste.But I like the herbal tea made with mint leaves,Dry ginger and sweetned with stevia leaves(One leaf for one cup)
