(Saute the garlic and shallot in the butter in a large sauté pan, once soft deglaze with the white wine, let reduce by half, then puree in the blender, add back to the pan and add the flour, cook for 1 minute, then add the cream and season with the salt and pepper, once it begins to thicken add the cheese and remove from heat.

Add the peppers and onions to the pan and sauté until heated through. Place this mix into the toasted hoagie roll, and our on the cheese sauce.
