In a large pot, bring to boil enough water to cook the pasta. When boiling, add salt and the shells. Let cook until al dente (refer to the package's cooking time for the correct time).

Add now the drained peas and stir fry with the cooked ham for 1-2 minutes to blend the flavors.
Turn off the heat and add the chopped fresh sage leaves to the sauce. Mix well.
