  1. Put the lasagne sheets in a large bowl and pour over boiling water to cover. Leave to soak for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6 and lightly oil a shallow baking tray.

  2. Drain the lasagne sheets in a colander. Take one sheet and put a large spoonful of ricotta in the centre. Scatter over a few rocket leaves, season well, then fold the sheet in half. Press the edges together to form a pocket. Continue to fill all the pasta sheets, then lay them on the baking tray so they overlap slightly.

  3. Tip the sauce over the pasta pockets, spreading to make sure they are completely covered. Sprinkle over the cheese and bake for 10-12 minutes until hot and bubbly. Serve with a crisp green salad.

Really quick and easy. Added some fresh basil in with the rocket and used double the cheese. Much nicer than supermarket ravioli and reheats well too

This was fantastic, quick easy & delicious! You have to work quite quickly with the lasagne sheets though, before they either stick together or split. Loved it though.

Very good and good for a student in college to make. I substituted the rocket for mixed vegetables and it was awesome.

Lovely, tasty and quick. Been making for a while now. Try adding some chopped spring onions and a chopped clove of garlic mixed with the grated cheddar for a really tasty topping

Loved it; made it two days on the trot with homemade fresh pasta dough. Spinach and ricotta is great, and I love the peppery fire of rocket for variation.

This had a good flavour for a midweek meal. Found making the pockets a bit complicated and fiddly (I was using dried lasagne sheets I had soaked) so turned it into a lasagne. I also added some frozen veg to bulk it out a bit and used baby spinach instead of rocket - one of those "fridge scraping" meals! Would make again though and stick to original recipe.

This really is very quick and gives impressive results considering the effort required. Very tasty midweek supper, and great warmed up at work the next day.

I really enjoyed this. It was quick to make so ideal after work and was much like a veggie lasagne in many ways. I served it with salad. Will make again definately
