Pound veal cutlets with hatched hammer to ľ in. Add salt and pepper, dust in flour. Cover the bottom of a large skillet with olive oil and add a tbsp of butter (optional). Sear cutlets on both sides (donít crowd your pan so do only 2 or 3 at a time). Adjust the oil as you cook (do not deep fry). Remove the cutlets when browned. When you have finished the cutlets set aside.

Process half pachage of pine nuts into the pesto (If you like pine nut use more, and if you donít ,skip them).
Place the cooked cutlets on a baking sheet. Spread a tsp of pesto over each cutlet. Cover the pesto with grated Fontina Cheese. Cover the cheese with a slice of prosciutto (pancetta if you prefer, but it is more salty).
Bake in the oven at 350ļ until the cheese melts.
Serve over mozzarella polenta or buttered fettuccini with mushroom sauce.
