Add flour, and milk, stirring well to avoid lumps.
Add remaining ingredients, except peas, in order of required cooking time (ie potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, etc). Add wine and season to taste. Heat until heated through, but do not boil. Add peas about 20 min before serving. Use milk to thin as necessary.
