Cook tortellini following package directions. Drain and set aside, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium.
Cook bacon, turning, until crispy, about 10 min. Drain on paper towel and discard all but 2 tbsp fat from pan.
Add garlic and parsley and cook for 1 min.
Add cream, peas, reserved cooking liquid and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until cream has thickened slightly, 3 min.

Remove from heat.
Crumble in bacon and stir in remaining 1/3 cup parmesan cheese and more parsley.
