  3. Reheat saute pan with remaining butter and olive oil. Saute garlic until golden brown, then add sage leaves and saute for another minute, until wilted. Add broccoli rabe and stir until combined. Remove from heat.

  6. Slice each lasagna sheet in half, height-wise so that you have 2 squares. Place 1 tbsp of filling on the bottom end and roll to seal cannelloni. Repeat with remaining lasagna sheets.
  7. Coat the bottom of a casserole dish with Tuscany Pumpkin Sauce, about half a jar. Line cannelloni in the casserole dish, on top of the sauce, then top with remaining Pumpkin Sauce. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup Parmigianno-Reggiano and bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
