    1. Heat olive oil in large frying pan over a medium heat and add turkey steaks. Cook for 5 minutes then flip and add the garlic and mushrooms to the frying pan.
    2. While the turkey is cooking, make the basil sauce. In a small saucepan, melt the butter then add the flour and stir. Add the milk a little at a time to form a roux - don't stop stirring. Once the sauce thickens, season with salt and pepper and stir in the pesto and grated cheese.
    3. Serve the turkey and mushrooms over a bed of wild rice and spoon the sauce on top.

    The proportions for the sauce seem to be incorrect. If I made it again, I would add more flour and butter, otherwise the sauce will not thicken. It tastes quite nice, but I wasn't crazy about it. Maybe more pesto and cheese for more flavour?  -  02 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
