In large bowl, mix rice with sausage, scallions, celery, 1/2 cup parsley, and egg. Season to taste. Put about 2 tablespoons rice mixture in center of each leaf. Fold leaves, envelope style, and place seam side down (in one layer) in large skillet. Pour Savoy sauce over rolls. Sprinkle with shredded inner cabbage leaves. Cvoer skillet and simmer 30-40 minutes. Before serving, sprinkle with remaining one-half cup parsley.
