  2. Reduce contents to a rapid simmer and let cook until asparagus is soft when pierced with a fork (about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove pot from the heat and tear up 2 pieces of the bread and add them to the pot.
  4. Allow the bread to absorb the liquid for about 5 minutes.
  5. Puree the contents of the pot using a hand or standard blender. If the sauce seems too thin add the third piece of bread and allow it to soak for a few minutes before pureeing everything together.
  6. Add the spinach and puree again until everything is smooth.
  7. Strain the sauce through a large meshed sieve and add the lemon zest and salt and pepper to taste.
