In a medium saucepan, cover beans with water; bring to a boil. Boil 2 minutes; remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. Drain; set aside. In a 3-quart saucepan or deep skillet, cook bacon with onion and garlic until bacon is crisp; drain off fat. Add broth, drained beans, and herbs; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 30 to 40 minutes, or until beans are tender. Drain off any excess liquid; stir in salt and pepper.
