  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.

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...

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...
