Start cooking the pasta in salted boiling water for about 11-12 minutes.
Chop finely the onion and sautee in olive oil for a couple of minutes, then add the sage and wine and let evaporate a couple of minutes.
Stir in the tomato sauce, it should have a rich burgundy colour, add a splash more of wine if desired. Let it cook for 5 minutes to thicken up.
Throw the frozen peas in the sauce, the heat alone will thaw them and by the time the pasta is cooked they'll be ready too.
Drain the pasta and pour the sauce on top, mixing well. Sprinkle some ground almonds on top and serve.
