In a medium saucepan, sauté onion and garlic in the olive oil. Add sausage pieces and brown them, breaking up the pieces slightly. Add tomatoes and tomato sauce and simmer on very low heat for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook pasta in boiling salted water according to package directions. Drain pasta thoroughly, then toss with half of the sauce. Top each portion with additional sauce, crumbled feta and mint.

*Many of our stores make lamb sausage with mint and feta. Try it or any Mediterranean style lamb sausage available.
