Quick and Easy Pasta Toss

I make this often for just myself and my DH--especially when I have an abundance of garden cherry tomatoes. This recipe will serve two people but may easily be doubled. I have listed 3 cups uncooked pasta, but you may adjust amount to taste or double the recipe if desired. Plan ahead--the tomato mixture needs to be chilled for a few hours before adding to the pasta to allow the tomatoes to create their own juice and the flavors to blend. You can mix the tomato mixture up in the morning to serve for dinner or even before you leave to work. All amounts may be adjusted to suit taste. The artichokes are only optional, but I like to add them in for a flavor boost. If I have any leftover cooked chicken or turkey I throw it in also. Serve this with crusty bread :)
