Remove to a large platter.
Wipe the skillet with a paper towel.
In a cup, combine 1 tablespoon of the basil, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper.
Rub over the turkey.
In the same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over high heat.
Add half of the turkey and cook for 2 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned on both sides and no longer pink.
Place the turkey over the spinach on the platter.
