2. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain, and set aside.
3. Heat 3 tbsp of olive oil in a large sauté pan set over medium heat. Add the thinly sliced leeks and 1/2 tsp kosher salt and cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, until the leeks are softened and bright green in color.
4. Add the garlic and lemon zest and cook for 2 more minutes until fragrant. Stir in the white wine and drained artichokes. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until wine has evaporated and then add the butter remaining 1 tsp of salt.
5. Add the pasta to the sauté pan and toss everything to coat. Stir in the arugula and half of the vinaigrette. Stir once more and then serve, topped with black pepper and fresh dill.
