  1. Using a spatula, break up the sausage in a big pan over medium-high heat for about two minutes.
  2. After adding the shallots and broccoli rabe, simmer for approximately 7 minutes, breaking up the sausage as you go.
  3. Incorporate the wine, garlic, salt and pepper flakes. Cook over medium heat for several minutes, breaking down the sausage and reducing the alcohol content.
  4. After turning off the heat, transfer the sausage mixture to a mixing bowl and let it to cool for ten or so minutes.
  5. Make sure there is no excess liquid by draining in a sieve before transferring to a mixing dish and thoroughly mixing in the parmesan cheese.

  7. Run your finger over the edges of the wrapper after dipping it into a small basin of water. Lift the lowest point that is closest to you and encircle the filling.
  8. Roll into a tight cylinder by folding the left and right corners in towards the centre.
  9. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling, setting aside.
