Cook pasta to desired doneness, drain and set aside. Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and sausage and cook until onions are softened and sausage is browned. Pour in wine and stir, loosening up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add tomatoes and simmer 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, and stir in beans, sage, salt and pepper. Cover, and cook until beans are heated through. Toss with the cooked pasta and top with Parmesan. Pass additional Parmesan at the table.
