  3. Preparation:
  4. Preheat a broiler.
  5. Chop four anchovies finely and mix with garlic, 1 tablespoon reserved anchovy oil, olive oil, vinegar and pepper flakes in a small saucepan. Brush a small amount of this mixture on the peppers and place in a single layer on a broiler tray, oiled side up. Broil until heated through, about 3 minutes.

  7. Mound beans on a serving platter. Arrange the peppers attractively on the bed of beans. Drizzle the lemon juice over top. Slice the remaining anchovies in paper-thin strips and scatter over the peppers along with the remaining parsley. Serve immediately with slices of crusty bread, if desired.
