Here’s a good way to use up those odds and ends of beans that tend to accumulate. They won’t cook at the same rate—some always fall apart, giving more body to the dish. With a pressure cooker, this is a fast and very easy dish.
Put the beans in a pressure cooker with the aromatics, oil, and 2 quarts water. Bring the pressure to high and cook for 25 minutes. Release the pressure, add 1½ teaspoons salt, and if they need more cooking, return the beans to pressure for 5 minutes or simmer until tender. Remove the aromatics. Taste the beans for salt. Serve them, with a little of their broth, in soup bowls with olive oil drizzled over the top, the parsley-garlic mixture, and pepper. Grate the cheese over all or pass it separately.
Nutritional information is based on 6 servings, includes 1/8 teaspoon of added salt per serving, but does not include extra virgin olive oil for finishing or freshly grated Parmesan.
