The shaved Parmesan cheese and the tanginess from the marinated artichokes will have you craving seconds. Vegetarians can serve it with a side of roasted asparagus or green beans, while meat-eaters can top the noodles with shredded chicken or tuna. And while we love it with the artichokes, think of this as a starter recipe—a great way to use any jarred condiment, herb, or cooked vegetable you have on hand.
