  6. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 35-45 minutes, or until beans are cooked to your preference, adding a tbsp water if it gets too thick.
  7. Serve topped with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese (optional), and additional red pepper flakes (optional), if desired.

This is a winner. While this may take a bit more effort than tossing some beans in a pan and boiling them within an inch of their life, that effort is rewarded with a flavorful and attractive dish. With all these good ingredients, I'm truly surprised to be the first to leave a review after 2 years. Thanks for posting !
