This is actually an old Sicilian pesant food that we had all the time in my family, the only difference is my Grandmother and Mother always added freshly grated Locatelli as the batter cooked and just before she poured it out to cool she would add coupoous amounts of fresh parsley. Also a Panelle sandwich consists of a round seeded roll, 2 or 3 Panelle, a few tablespoons of Ricotta and a good amount of grated Cacciocovallo on top of that. Bake this in the oven until the cheese starts to melt! Ummmm Delicioso!!!
