You should be able to add your phone number in Settings>Messages>Send & Receive at>You can be reached by iMessages at, if your phone number is listed in there, select it and then uncheck your email address and then the iPad will be using the phone number just like the iPhone.
If you phone number is not listed in there, you probably have to sign out/turn off Messages on the phone and the iPad Mini and then start over again on the phone, then on the Mini - and then your phone number should be accessible to use on the iPad.
Read this support article and pay attention to the information at the very end.
