  1. Season the cutlets with salt/red/black pepper. Rub the pesto all over the cutlets. Cover with saran wrap and place in refrigerator until ready to cook. Like to do day before or at least 3-4 hours before. Remove from refrigerator about 1 hour before preparing.
  2. In large skillet, drizzle bottom of dish with olive oil and place over medium heat.
  3. In shallow dish, place flour and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Dredge the cutlets in the flour and place in hot skillet. Do not crowd.
  5. Saute 2-4 minutes per sides (depending on thickness of cutlets). Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels and cover to keep warm.
  6. Drain off any excess oil from skillet.
  7. Add the butter and melt.
  8. Add shallots, pearl onions, bell peppers, garlic and saute 2-4 minutes, or until onions are tender.
  9. Add the mushrooms and saute for another 2 minutes.

  11. Add the soup and gravy packet and whisk to mix well. If sauce gets too thick, add a little more broth to loosen the gravy.
