Cook bacon

Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Cut bacon into 1-inch pieces. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add bacon to the dry pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crispy, 7-9 min.** Remove the pan from heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Discard all but 1 tbsp bacon fat (dbl for 4 ppl) from the pan.


Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. While water comes to a boil, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then thinly slice shallot into 1/8-inch slices.

Cook tortellini

Add tortellini to the boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 2-3 min. Drain and return tortellini to the same pot, off heat.

Make creamy basil pesto sauce

While tortellini cooks, heat the pan with reserved bacon fat (from step 1) over medium-high. When hot, add shallots and peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from heat, then stir in pesto and cream.

Assemble tortellini

Add creamy basil pesto sauce, half the bacon and half the Parmesan to the pot with tortellini. Stir until tortellini is coated.

Finish and serve

Divide tortellini between bowls. Sprinkle remaining bacon and remaining Parmesan over top.
