  5. Simmer the soup gently for 15 minutes, gradually the egg whites will rise to the surface and start to form a crust. Do not disturb this, it is going to act as your filter for the soup to clarify it.
  6. Line a sieve with a piece of clean, unused muslin, gently ladle the crust evenly into the sieve. The, ever so slowly ladle the liquid, a ladle at a time over the crust. allow time for the liquid to pass through the crust and sieve before adding any more.
  7. Return the clear liquid to the pan and reheat to hot not boiling. This soup is best served warm to hot (not boiling) as it intensifies the flavour.

  5. Add thyme and nutmeg, return onion and garlic to pan, then set aside to cool.
  6. Add parmesan, season to taste and stir to combine. Set aside until ready to fill pasta
