We eat so much pasta that it's virtually impossible for me to claim an absolute "favorite" sauce.

I will say that the ones that seem to have the most encores are white clam sauce (never cared for red), calamari in spicy red sauce, creamy gorgonzola with arugula & cherry tomatoes, Arrabiatta & Puttanesca (both spicy reds), a nice solid turkey ragu, & my husband's favorite "yogurt Alfredo".

I do not like a pink vodka sauce. It's that unpleasant mix between red and white - - - I want one or the other. My favorite sauce is a rich, thick red sauce with red wine/tomato paste, etc. But then again my favorite is an Alfredo...and Pesto......and well...I guess I only know what I don't like - pink vodka sauce and puttanesca

My all time favorite pastas are the ones that contain, garlic, onions, tomatoes, capers, lemon zest, wine, mushrooms, herbs (especially fresh basil and parsley) cream, butter, olive oil, seafood, shell fish, ground beef or veal, chicken, artichokes, spinach, red peppers, red pepper flakes, asparagus, sun dried tomatoes. If I left anything out, just add it to the list. I don't think there is such a thing as bad pasta. Oh, and Barilla pasta, any shape.
