- Once hot, add the garlic, rosemary, olives, and artichokes and sauté over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
- Pour in the wine and cook for an additional 2 minutes to allow the alcohol to evaporate.
- Add the orange zest, season with salt and pepper, and mix everything together. Set aside.
- Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente. Drain and add to the pan with the artichoke mixture.
- Return the pan to high heat and mix everything together for 30 seconds to allow the sauce to coat the pasta evenly and serve immediately.
