This dish is inspired by Princess Ariel from Disney’s The Little Mermaid. The idea came from my friend, Olivia Mackoul age 9 years, who loves this movie. We decided that Ariel probably would not want to eat seafood because ‘fish are friends.’ However, Olivia wanted the dish to feel like it comes from the sea – so we used tubular pasta and died the water a deep green-blue. The arugula adds a bit of plant life to enhance the underwater experience.
