Beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until the mixture is thick and lemon-colored and the sugar is dissolved. Beat in Marsala, salt, and, if desired, nutmeg. Transfer mixture to the top of a double boiler. Place over gently boiling water (upper pan should not touch water). Cook, beating constantly with the electric mixer on medium speed, about 13 minutes or until mixture is thick, triple in volume, and an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of mixture registers 145°F and holds that temperature for 3-1/2 minutes (or until thermometer registers 165°F). Stir in vanilla. Serve immediately or chill completely before serving. Serving Suggestions: Serve with fresh fruit. Use as a filling or topping for cake or pastries. Serve with sorbet or ice cream. Fold in whipped cream for a mousse or freeze the mixture for a semifreddo.
