If you're making homemade spaghetti sauce a little bit of sugar cuts down the acidity in the tomatoes, if you buy pre-made sauce there's no need to add sugar. To answer your question, no I do not put sugar in my spaghetti sauce, because I'm too lazy to make homemade sauce.

I put artificial sweetener in my spaghetti sauce to give it a better taste.

I always add a little brown sugar to Bolognaise sauce when I am making it for Spaghetti Bolognaise, so in that sense, yes. (Anyone want the recipe?)

Thanks for the offer, but meatballs are about the only way I will eat meat with my spaghetti---and only when I order delivery food.

No, I do not put sugar in my spaghetti. I do not know anyone
who does so. However, I do add a little when I make the tomato sauce. It
decreases the acidity. You can include sugar in your sauces as long as you do
not utilise too much.  Unless you are trying
to make a dessert or something.
