Put the pasta shells in a pot with the boiling water, a little salt and a few drops of the oil. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
Leave to stand for 3 minutes, then drain and toss in the remaining oil.
Mix in the beans, pepper and olives, season and divide the mixture between 4 individual dishes. Arrange the eggs on top.
Serve and eat while the pasta is still warm — it makes an interesting contrast with the cold salad.
