   1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat.  Add
   the onion and
      garlic; saute 5 minutes.  Add the wine, oregano,
   crushed pepper flakes
      and salt; simmer 5 minutes.  Stir in the undrained
   tomatoes and water.
      Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer 15
   minutes.
   
   2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta.
   
   3. Prepare the mussels.  Place on steamer rack and
   place over pot.  (The
      sauce should be cooking at a high simmer.)  Cover
   and steam 20 to 25
      minutes, or until mussel shells open (discard any
   that do not open).
   
   4. Cook the pasta in the boiling water according to
   package directions;
      drain.  Remove the mussels from the steamer.  Put
   the pasta into the
      sauce with the parsley, adding pepper to taste.
   Transfer to plates or
      large shallow bowls and sprinkle with feta cheese.
   Put mussels on top
      and serve.
