  1. Cut the artichokes into half lengthwise.
  2. In a heavy pot (I use my terra-cotta baker), heat the oil over medium heat until lightly smoking.
  3. Add the garlic, pepper flakes and cook a minute or two until the garlic is fragrant.
  4. Add the wine, tomatoes, and half the parsley.
  5. Season well with salt and pepper, and bring to a boil.
  6. Add the artichokes cut side down, and reduce the heat to a simmer.
  7. Cook about 40 to 45 minutes, turning the artichokes halfway, until the chokes are fork tender and the sauce has thickened.
  8. Stir in the remainder of the parsley, and arrange the chokes on a platter.
  9. Spoon the sauce over the artichokes and serve immediately.
