Wilt on medium-low heat until greens are limp and glossy. (If using frozen spinach, cook until spinach is completely thawed.)

Drain marinade from artichoke hearts into a bowl, saving the marinade separately. Chop the artichokes. Add the artichokes into the mixture and pour the artichoke marinade into the mixture, stirring.
