Melt remaining butter and Cream Cheese; stir until blended. Add onion-garlic mixture, fennel, pepper, Tabasco sauce, and milk. Heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in Monterey Jack until melted.

Heat olive oil; sauté green and red peppers and mushrooms over high heat until vegetables begin to brown. Add artichoke hearts and remove from heat.

To serve, reheat capellini by placing in boiling water for one minute. Drain. Combine cheese sauce and drained capellini. Top with sautéed vegetables.
