  1. Melt the margarine in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in the garlic, onion, and tarragon; cook until the onion has softened, about 5 minutes. Add white wine, and cook for 5 minutes. Pour in half and half and Parmesan cheese; increase heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer.
  2. Whisk the flour into the water, dissolving any lumps. When the sauce has come to a boil, stir in the flour mixture to thicken to desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

downright awful. does not taste like cream or garlic. it is totally overpowered by parmesean cheese. i would omit the cheese entirely, or at least reduce it by 75% if I were to try again. However, this did not show enough promise to try again.

I thought this came out perfect consistency wise. I did add 2 additional cloves of garlic (for a total of 6), but felt it could still use two more. Also, with the sweetness from the taragon, cream, and garlic all working together I felt like perhaps 1/2 tsp. of cayenne might be in order next time. All in all though ...it's a keeper. Ready to eat in 30 minutes tops - always need those recipes! Thanks Icy!

Overall, a good sauce. Used butter and cut onions in half and eliminated the tarragon, as I don't care for the flavor. I would prefer a stronger garlic flavor, so next time, I'll double it. I was worried about the Parmesan based on another reviewer, so I cut that in half. It needs the full amount.
