Try oven roasting garlic before adding it to sauce. It will give it a smokey-sweet flavour. Fire-roasting peppers before adding them to pasta/tomato sauce is always good for adding a punch of flavour. If you're adding garlic while sauteing onions, add nearer the end so that they don't become burnt/bitter. Sometimes a dash of cumin or sumac will kick up the sauce a bit. Browning any meat before adding it to the sauce is usually good for some extra flavour too.
