spicy tomatillo with ricotta and bacon pasta


  • 1/2 lb fresh long pasta
  • 1 jar Mölli Mexico City cooking sauce
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 4 slices thick bacon, roughly chopped
  • 6 oz ricotta (or to taste)
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 cup, Panela or queso fresco cheese, grated


  1. Cook pasta according to instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add bacon and saute until browned and crispy on both sides, about 2 minutes.
  3. Remove bacon to drain on a paper towel-lined plate and remove 3/4 of the bacon fat from the pan. Add Mexico City sauce to pan, bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Drain pasta (reserving 1/3 cup of water) and add it to the Mexico City mixture pan. Mix well, then add ricotta and mix thoroughly. Add a bit of the pasta water if the mixture seems too thick. Season to taste with salt and mix again. Serve pasta and garnish with bacon, grated cheese and avocado. Provecho!
