This depend on the theme of the meal and or the wine if any is served, it would also depend on the occasion, dinner party, casual, or family.

Pasta dishes is just that "Pasta", it shouldn't be smothered in sauce regardless of the type of sauce.

For Casual and family I would serve what is most liked such as: Cream Sauces, Fish Sauces, Meat Sauces, Gnocchi Sauces etc.

For Theme and Dinner parties I suggest light Sauces sparingly seasoned or without onions and garlic.

String varieties (spaghetti type) and/or medium to small pasta variations for light sauces.
