Also, cook the eggs in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Then peel the eggs and cut them into quarters.

After that, peel the cucumber and cut it into half-moons. Slice the tomato as well.

Now in a large bowl, mix the pasta with lupini beans, lamb’s lettuce, capers, tomato, and cucumber.

Then serve the trottole pasta salad in a salad dish with the eggs. For the salad dressing: mix the lemon juice with olive oil, salt, and pepper and serve the pasta salad with it.
