My little one won't try any food with a sauce. For example she will eat plain pasta but not with a tomato based or cream sauce. She won't use any dipping sauces, try gravy or creamy rice. Anything with a runny texture. Do you have any suggestions?

Nicely done! "Try it you might like it" and if they don't let it go.
The reverse psychology and offering a treat/reward are also other tricks parents have used to get kids to eat certain foods too. Some things we just develop a taste for later.
We save the reverse psychology for NEED to eat foods only, but we don't ever offer a reward for eating, though some parents do with success.
We couldn't have our desert unless we ate the main course. The desert was our "reward". Reverse psychology works because no one wants to feel "left out" of anything that appears to be "good". :)
