  1. Recipe Instructions Fill a 4-quart saucepan three-fourths full with water and bring to a boil with lemon. Quarter 1 artichoke lengthwise through stem and with a stainless steel paring knife cut out choke. Trim any spiky purple tipped leaves. Halve quarters lengthwise and place in a bowl of lemon water. Prepare remaining artichokes in same manner. Simmer artichokes in boiling water 5 minutes, or until almost tender, and drain in a colander. Artichokes may be prepared up to this point 1 day ahead, cooled completely, and chilled, rolled in damp paper towels in a sealable plastic bag. Chop pancetta and mince garlic. Fill a 6-quart kettle three-fourths full with water and bring to a boil with salt for fettuccine. In a 12-inch deep heavy skillet cook pancetta in oil over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp and with a slotted spoon transfer to a bowl. Discard fat from skillet. In skillet heat butter over moderate heat until foam subsides and cook artichokes, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add wine and simmer, stirring and scraping up brown bits, 1 minute. Cook fettuccine in boiling water until al dente. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking liquid and drain pasta in colander. Add reserved pasta cooking liquid to artichoke mixture and bring to a boil. Add pasta, pancetta, Parmesan, parsley, and lemon juice, tossing to combine well.
