In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and add onions. Cook until tender, ~4 to 5 minutes. Add pepper strips and cook 2 to 3 minutes or just until they begin to soften. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Move vegetables to side of the pan and tip it slightly to allow oil and vegetable juices to flow to the other side. Add anchovy paste, lemon zest, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to the oil and use a spoon to mix well.
Drain beans and pat dry with kitchen towels. Add the beans to the skillet and toss everything together, cooking until the beans have rewarmed, about 2 minutes. Toss the vegetables with the fresh parsley, and immediately remove from the heat and place in a serving bowl.
