Longevity Noodle Soup

8 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound dried thin egg noodles or spaghetti
3 cups chicken broth or stock
1 tablespoon soy sauce, or to taste
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 4 teaspoons water
White or black pepper, to taste

2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 green onions (spring onions), finely chopped
1/2 - 2/3 cup chopped cooked ham

Prep Time: 20 minutes           Cook Time: 20 minutes        Total Time: 40 minutes        Yield: 4 servings

Bring the salted water to a boil and parboil the noodles, using chopsticks to separate them. Rinse the noodles repeatedly in cold water and drain thoroughly. Divide the noodles equally among soup bowls.
Bring the broth or stock to a boil over medium heat. Stir in the soy sauce, sesame oil, and pepper. Give the cornstarch and water a quick re-stir and stir it in.
Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the beaten egg, pouring it slowly through the tines of a fork and stirring rapidly in one direction for about 1 minute.
Pour the hot broth over the noodles. Garnish with the chopped ham and green onion.

NOTE: Make sure the broth is really hot or the egg will mix into the broth rather than be cooked by it and separate. I did enjoy the creamy texture of the mix in egg though.
