 Slice about 2/3 of artichokes into small wedges; chop remainder into paste. Set

oregano, salt and fresh-ground pepper. Reduce heat to low and stir in wine, lemon

until spinach is wilted and all is heated through (1-3 minutes). Stir in ricotta.
Drain pasta and add to sauce; remove from heat and add lemon zest just before
serving.
