  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, combine chicken broth, water, pasta, chickpeas, scallions, and nutmeg over high heat. Cover. Once mixture comes to a boil, uncover and cook 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Add greens, stir and cook 1 minute. Reduce heat to a simmer. Stir soup rapidly, then slowly drizzle eggs into soup near the edge of the pot, stirring constantly. (If you add them to the center, they'll clump up too much. Cook 2 minutes. Season with pepper. Add scallions and lemon juice. Serve with Parmesan sprinkled on top.
