Chef WayJerry Traunfeld soaks dried white beans overnight before boiling them and stewing them with caramelized onions, garlic, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and rosemary.
Easy Way Instead of soaking white beans, use ready-to-eat canned cannellini beans.

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 large onions, thinly sliced
10 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 scant tablespoon chopped rosemary
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Two 15-ounce cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 cup water
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
How to Make It
In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the onions, garlic, rosemary and crushed red pepper and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until just softened, about 5 minutes. Uncover and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions are very soft and lightly caramelized, about 15 minutes longer. Stir in the beans, parsley and water and simmer until stewy, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
The cooked white beans can be refrigerated overnight.
