Heat olive oil in pan. Saute onion until just translucent. Add mushroom and garlic and cook down about 3 to 5 minutes more. Add spinach and basil and cook until well wilted, about 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

Put turkey aand pork in a bowl. Add cooled mixture and salt and pepper and mix lightly until all the ingredients are well incorporated (do not overwork the meat or it will cook tough).
