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?

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.
