Mac and Cheese at Rosetta’s Kitchen in Asheville, NC

Editor Note: Our first guest post comes from Panda Cookie all the way over in North Carolina. When she’s not enjoying a hot bowl of mac n’ cheese you can find her sewin’ up adorable wares and baking delicious vegan treats to sell on Etsy.

Sweet, sweet mac and cheese.  When I saw that the Noochy Noodle was taking guest posts I knew I needed to write about one of my favorite places to get it.

Rosetta’s Kitchen in downtown Asheville, NC, is an all vegetarian and vegan restaurant that serves up comfort food with the best of them.  They stay open til 3 am on the weekends so you can get your fill of mashed potatoes, corn fritters and BBQ tempeh in the wee hours.  Their mac and cheese can be ordered as a side dish, cup for $2.50, bowl for $4.

This is mac and cheese prepared the way I like it best, elbow noodles with a cheesy sauce (I think nooch based) and a bit of breadcrumbs baked on top.  There is also a sprinkling of greens and tomatoes added, although I have been when they have it sans tomato or greens.  It satisfies by being creamy without being too heavily sauced.  I like to have a bit of bite to the noodle and I’ve found too much sauce makes the dish too mushy for my tastes.  There isn’t anything revolutionary about the mac at Rosetta’s and I think that is why I am so fond of it.  It is just good solid comfort food when I need it.
