- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, in a large skillet on medium-high, heat oil. Add onion and cook for about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft. Add beef, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper and cook for about 4 minutes more, breaking up with a spoon, until no longer pink. Add garlic, cumin, chile powder and cinnamon and cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly, until fragrant. Add tomatoes and bring to a simmer; reduce heat to medium-low and stir in currants. Cook until sauce is slightly thickened and currants are plump, 2 to 4 minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper.
- To boiling water, add pasta and cook al dente according to package directions. Divide among serving bowls and top evenly with sauce, feta and mint.
