You can accomplish this by following these instructions: Open the associated PVM file by right-clicking it and choosing "Show Package Contents." Locate the main HDD file for the VM (has the same filename previx as the PVM file). Right-click the HDD file and choose Open With ? Parallels Mounter.app. If you do not see Parallels Mounter.app in the list of programs to open the HDD file with, you can find it located in the /Library/Parallels/ directory on your hard drive.
