Drain and halve tomatoes. Chop courgette. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over high heat. Cook the diced bacon, tomatoes, courgette and thyme leaves, tossing, until tender, 4-5 mins. Add garlic paste, cream (1/2 bottle for 2P / 1 bottle for 4P), chicken stock, spinach and Parmesan. Cook until slightly thickened, 1 min.


Meanwhile, boil a kettle of water. Pour boiling water into a saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil, add tortellini and cook until al dente, 3 mins.


Add tortellini to the frying pan using a slotted spoon and toss to coat. Divide pasta between bowls. Top with chilli flakes (if using). Tear over basil.
