I like all kinds of pasta. My current favorite is Pasta Amatriciana made with pancetta or bacon, onions, plum tomatoes, a bit of sugar and red wine and some garlic, salt and pepper . It's easy to make and very tasty. You can also use Canadian Bacon or smoked ham instead I like the bacon version.

In general I prefer the white or oil/wine based sauce.
BUT, I love summer when we get to harvest fresh tomatoes from the garden and make a nice fresh not cooked sauce, just warmed through and poured over your pasta of choice and topped with fresh basil and grated parmesan

Pasta Amatriciana
I love that sauce! My most favourite is anything with cream and Parmegiano Regianno, just makes me feel happy.

At work, I have a standing $5 bet, for employees AND members, to find ANY restaurant in Tulsa that makes a better Chicken Fettucini Alfredo that what I make. Yes, I know it's bragging, but I make a darn good Fett. Alf., much better than what you'll get in ANY chain restaurant. The only folks that have a chance of matching/beating my dish are the folks that own/operate the small, local trattorias and bistros.

That said, I will admit I'm addicted to Ragu Super Chunky Mushroom Garden Style. Yes, it's a canned product. I don't care, I LOVE the taste. If I make a sauce from scratch, that's the taste I can and will duplicate.

I love Pesto, especially when I have some onions, Kalamata olives, button mushrooms, julienned portobello mushroom caps, garlic, diced fresh tomatoes, and preferably some chicken and shrimp in the mix.

From what the Food and Beverage manager at work says, I make a darn good white wine / garlic / butter sauce.

I have Putanesca sauce on my "Must Make" list. I can't remember if I've got Arrabiatta and Amatriciana sauces on there as well.

Penne with sausage and peppers, my homemeade farfalle with mushrooms and sage, or homemade spinach and cheese ravioli.

My answer to the question posed in the title is "YES!"
The only pasta sauce I can think of that I am less than enthusiastic about is Vodka Sauce. Imho, it is too often thick and gummy. I also don't like pre-prepped Alfredo. For me, Alfredo Sauce can't possibly come in a jar.

I love pasta with sauces, and enjoy making up my own sauces with different vegetables as I go along. Most leftovers are also fair game to be turned into pasta sauce.

My all-time faves? in no particular order (and I'm sure I will leave some out):
Tagliatelle Bolognese, Paglia e Fieno; Tortellacci with Sage and Brown Butter; Carbonara, Puttanesca; both white and red clam sauces; pesto cream sauce; my own recipe for Fresh Lime Pasta with Scallops.
