  a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until beans
  are tender (about 45 minutes).  (The beans should be softer than al

  lengthwise and slice thinly.  There should be about 8 cups of fennel
  slices. Discard stalks or save for soup.  Heat 1/3 cup olive oil in a
  large heavy skillet; cook fennel over medium-low heat until wilted
  and translucent, about 10-12 minutes.  Do this in batches if

  leaf from beans; drain beans.  Add beans to the skillet, tossing
  gently to combine all the ingredients.  Add parsley and chopped
  fennel leaves. Season with salt and pepper.  Remove from heat, add
  lemon juice and remaining olive oil to taste.  Serve warm or at room
