Me, too or Me, (n)either?

I had a thought early this morning that has bothered me ever since. If someone says, "I like spaghetti, but I don't like tomatoes." What is the correct response, and why? What is the rule? What if the positive and negative references were switched? "I don't like tomatoes, but I like spaghetti." Would it make a difference?

"Me, too" or "Me, (n)either?

Thanks in advance.

I like spaghetti, but I don't like tomatoes.
I don't like tomatoes, but I like spaghetti.

In both cases, a response to indicate agreement could be: "Me too"

For normal usage:
I like coffee. Me too
I don't like tea. Nor me (though "me too" is possible)
