Place first 8 ingredients in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Cook pasta according to package directions; add artichokes for the last 5 minutes. Drain, but hold aside 1 cup of the pasta water.
Pour pesto into large bowl. Stir in pasta, artichokes and cheese. Thin sauce with some of the pasta water if needed. Garnish (if you wish) with more cilantro and parmesan.
