   1. Cook shells according to package directions.
   
   2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium
   heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring often,
   until they begin to soften, 4 minutes. Add beans and
   seasonings. Cook until heated through, 1 minute.
   
   3. Drain pasta, shaking to remove as much moisture as
   possible. Fill with bean mixture. Arrange in a shallow
   casserole that is just large enough to hold shells.
   Sprinkle with olives and cheese. Broil 6 inches from
   heat source just until the cheese melts, about 1
   minute.
