1/2 tsp salt, plus extra for seasoning

675g rocket
110g thinly sliced fresh basil leaves, divided

1) Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil over a high heat. Add the ravioli and cook for 7 to 9 minutes until tender. Drain and keep warm.

2) Add the pancetta to a large nonstick frying pan over a medium-high heat and cook, stirring frequently, until crispy, about 8 minutes. Remove to kitchen towels to drain.
