Cook tortellini according to package instructions. Generously salt water before adding pasta.
Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add prosciutto and cook for 2-3 minutes, until slightly crispy.
Add heavy cream and tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. If you prefer a creamy tomato sauce, you can blend the heavy cream and tomatoes before adding to skillet.
Stir in peas and let cook for 3-4 minutes longer. Stir in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (reserving 1/4 cup for garnish). Add salt and pepper to taste.
Toss tortellini and tomato cream sauce together. Top with remaining Parmesan Cheese and Fresh Basil ribbons.
