I don't understand this. I really don't like sweet pasta sauces at all. That is why I like Clasico (spicy red pepper or tomato and pesto). They seem to be the only commercial sauce that doesn't add a ton of sugar. I know the sugar is to cut down the acidity, it just doesnt seem worth it IMO.

I agree with you swinchen, I do not like sweet sauces, I do not add sugar when I make tomatoe sauce.

I noticed there was some talk about favorite places to eat...

If anyone is ever up near my neck of the woods (Rockland Maine) Try this place: http://www.cafemiranda.com/

You should check out there menu! It is huge. They make this focaccia bread that my girlfriend and I call "the chewy bread" it is to die for. I have been trying to recreate it at my place... no luck. I think the wood-fired brick oven is a key component. We always split the "Pasta without" which is basically just fresh homeade fetucine, witch a nice simple sauce and some parm. peels ontop. Let me tell you... excellent!
