Soak the beans

Add the beans to a large bowl & cover with water. Soak for 8 hours or overnight then pick through the beans & drain.

Sauté aromatics

Heat large Dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot with a lid over medium heat, add oil & heat through. Add onion & sauté until tender, stirring occasionally (~6 min). Add garlic & sauté until fragrant (~30 sec).

2

Add remaining ingredients

Add beans, rosemary, crushed red pepper, Parmesan rind, broth & 4 cups of water. Bring beans to boil over medium heat, then lower heat to medium-low & cover.

3

Simmer beans

Simmer until beans are tender (~3 hours). Check occasionally & add more water if necessary to keep the beans covered by about ½” of liquid. When beans are tender, remove stems from rosemary, then remove Parmesan rind & discard both. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
