  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.

I had to change a few things because I used this as pizza sauce. I have confidence that is it a good sauce 'as is' on pasta or over chicken, but it worked out good for pizza too! I made my own c...

This was a tasty cream sauce. Very heavy but definitely tasty! I was concerned with the tarragon reviews so I just omitted that, and the over all flavor was very good. I used butter instead o...

sauce was so easy to make. and it tasted great. i didn't add the tarragon and i substitued the half and hlaf with cream

It was really good - a keeper! I used fresh tarragon, since I had it. I love tarragon, so not sure why so many others don't and left it out - it was just right. My vegetarian (not vegan) daugh...

I absolutely LOVED this sauce. I added a bit of Asiago along with the Parmesan. It was delicious!!
