Sweet Spaghetti Sauce

Q:Dear Cooks,

I have had spaghetti sauces that have a sweet taste to them…..almost like a cinnamon taste that I cannot identify. I love this taste in my sauce. Can you tell me what ingredient I am tasting and how to use it in spaghetti sauce or pizza sauces?

Thanks,

A:Rene,

There is probably added sugar or even brown sugar in the sauce. If you want the sweetness without the sugar, peel a carrot into the sauce early in the cooking process and by the time the sauce is ready to be served, the carrot will have dissolved, leaving a sweetness to the sauce.
