This soup is often served on birthdays to symbolize wishes for a long life.  It's basically an egg drop soup with ham and noodles, and it's absolutely delicious.

4 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon sesame oil
8 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Certified Organic Chicken Broth or Swanson® Natural Goodness® Chicken Broth
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 eggs, beaten
16 ounces (1 package) thin spaghetti, cooked according to package directions
1/4 pound sliced cooked ham, cut into 2-inch-long strips (about 1 cup)
4 medium green onions, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
