I prefer red sauce or tomato sauce for my pasta. White sauce are too creamy for my taste that is why I get tired of it easily. The lycopene in tomato is a very good plus as well.

I agree with you even though i like both red and white sauces. Tomatoes are one of the power foods and it has less calories compared to a cream based sauce. I also like my food spicy and that is uited well with a tomato based sauce.

You're right...I can't imagine spicy white cream sauce...I just think chili doesn't go well with milk and cream :)

I like both sauces because some pasta are thick and absorb the white sauce very good, but other thin pasta I love red sauce. I just love anything with pasta really because I like Italian food. Have a nice day and a plus to you. Pablo

From what I have observed, it depends on my mood but I end up ordering white sauces more. I really like sauces with lots of cream and cheese. EEEK! Bad for the trigliceryds. Most of the time, I try to look for combination sauces but not a lot of resto offer that. I love to taste different Carbonara recipes. But I also like Bakes Lasagna a lot. For my birthday yesterday, my mom made Fettuccini Alfredo... hmmm... all this talk is making me hungry. At times, I also like to eat pasta with pesto sauce. Not all like this because they do not like the taste of the pine nuts and the basil... it's actually healthy though.

I've always like tomato sauces better than alfredo type sauces because of the same reason. Awhile back I tried a spicy cajun chicken dish with spicy alfredo because I like spicy foods and even though I liked the little "bite" the alfredo was still too rich for me and I could only eat a little at a time.

Same here! I also prefer red sauce over white cause white sauce tend to me too creamy that you feel bloated before you even enjoy your pasta. A also prefer my tomato base sauce sour than sweet. Although I enjoy a nice sweet blend tomato sauce once in a while.

It all depends on my mood and what I'm gonna eat with my pasta. I usually reach for the white sauce, especially for my zitti. I like having it with pizza. But if I'm craving for a seafood pasta or if I have garlic bread, I prefer red sauce. But I like both with lots and lots of parmesan cheese.
