Finely chop half the herbs. Heat butter and oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Add chopped herbs, onion, garlic and pancetta, cook for 4 – 5 minutes until softened. Transfer to a bowl and toss with remaining ingredients, except the herb leaves. Set aside to soak for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a 20 x 30cm baking dish. Add stuffing mixture and top with remaining herb leaves. Bake for 1 hour until golden.
