Woolworths Basil Pesto Pasta Salad Kit :
4.13 out of 5 based on 153 reviews.

Why you’ll love the new Woolworths Basil Pesto Pasta Salad Kit …

For the Woolworths Basil Pesto Pasta Salad Kit Product Review, we asked mums to try the Salad Kit that’s made up of a deliciously cooked and flavoured pre-cooked penne pesto pasta combined with cherry tomatoes, parmesan, parsley and fresh rocket.

All ingredients are packaged separately within the larger salad container for freshness and crunch.  So all you have to do is mix them together just before serving.

Here’s an awesome 10 Minute, 1 Pan Dinner using the Woolworths Basil Pesto Pasta Salad Kit …

How easy is that?  No needing to buy (and prepare) all the separate ingredients!  Just tip into a bowl, mix and serve.

We think these Woolworths Salad Kits are a brilliant idea for those times when you’re asked to bring a salad along to a BBQ or party … or even a picnic!  And they are absolutely an inspired choice for busy weeknight dinners when you only have minutes to put dinner together.

    Son loves it

    My son absolutely loves pesto pasta and because I couldn’t make pesto at home, I just went to buy some and phew, there wasn’t any on the shelves. And omg thankfully woolies was nearby I just grabbed a woolies salad pesto pasta kit and my 5 year old was so very happy. Winner winner! It is adequate for a kid.

    I was looking at something quick and easy. As I had enough of eating the kids left overs. I remember seeing this on mouth of mums and thought I would give it a go. Wow was I surprised it was so yummy. I have even gotten my hubby onto them from he’s lunch for work. It’s going to be a must buy in our house. It’s fresh it’s crisp just right

    Punchy pesto, bold basil-y goodness

    I’m not sure about you, but there are few things more satisfying than a delicious pre-prepared salad that you can throw together in a matter of seconds (because the time spent having to chop up veggies, wash lettuce, cook pasta is vastly overrated).

    Woolworths’ Basil Pesto Pasta Salad kit is the ideal lunch solution (just chuck in some shredded roast chicken for extra protein) or the ideal side accompaniment to a summer barbecue.

    It was a hit with hubby and Miss Two (who, let’s be honest, is a typical toddler in terms of her food fickleness).

    And in addition to its own deliciousness, the Basil Pesto Pasta Salad paired perfectly with a chilled glass of rose (what more do you need?!).

    I’m looking forward to trying the entire Woolworths Salad Kits range – they are definitely my go to for entertaining this summer!

    My new favourite salad!

    I loved this salad so much, I have purchased it four more times since reviewing it. Why do I love it? Fresh, tasty, convenient! I love how the cherry tomatoes, parsley and Parmesan cheese is packaged separately to the pesto salad. I have fussy family members and this way I can control what or how much to cater for preferences. The addition of pine nuts would be the only thing I would add, otherwise it is perfect. At 500 grams it’s a great size too.

    Great packaging

    Loved this kit. My favourite parts are the separate sections using the tray. So much better not having the little sachets for anything.
    I used it over a few days, so I didn’t mix it all at once, and it kept quite fresh. Also loved the flavour !!

    Not my favorite

    We went too keen on this salad as I didn’t like the pesto but loved the tomatoes so I enjoyed them but I won’t be buying this particular flavour again as my family prefer my home made pesto .

    Nice but costly

    I enjoyed the salad and it was a convenient meal. It was very creamy and the rocket and basil made it fresh and balanced. I do however think that it was a little over priced for what you got (four little tomatoes wasn’t enough for me). Making a similar salad in this portion size would be much more affordable. I liked that it was quick and easy but it would need to cost less for me to buy regularly.

    Yummy

    This salad is delicious, worked well for all in house as side dish, love how things are separate so if you don’t like something , you don’t have to keep it in the salad. Would love if they sold the sauce separately in the small packet how it is in this or had maybe “add on” kits to bulk it out a bit more when needed. Very convenient

    So flavoursome

    I bought the salad kit to use as part of our Christmas lunch.
    The flavours were awesome, even the 3 little people ate it!
    The box was deceiving, there was plenty in it for our family of 5

    Tasty

    I was very happy with the basil pesto salad, it was very well balanced and looked appealing, I cut the tomatoes to balance the look. There was plenty for 4 people as a side dish. The only thing I had trouble with, was the plastic container, I found it very difficult to get into, but I understand it was sealed for freshness, as you are the fresh food people.

    Yummy salad

    I loved that all the components were separate. It was a delicious and fast salad. Servings for 4 was a bit of a stretch, it would be more of a serving for 2-3 serves. I loved the little tray that sat inside it with for separate ingredients as it kept them fresh. The shape of the container was also great, and was easy to lock back in place!

    Oh Woolies- This wasn't a hit!

    I tried so so hard to love it- but I just didn’t. I had the Basil & Pesto Pasta Salad, not normally.something is grab, however there wasn’t much choice at my local. Pasta cooked well, great amount of cheese…but that’s about as far as it goes. Way way too much basil (don’t get me wrong, I like basil, but it was way too over powering. (And I only put about 2/3s in. I liked the amount of salad you do get though, easily do 2-3 people as a side. I wish the Chicken salad was available because that would have been my first choice. Better luck next time Woolies

    Ok but tasted to strong

    I only had the choice of 2 salad packs at my Woolworths…. but essentially only 1 as whoever packed the chicken one did it so that all the sauce drained out of them ????

    I tried the basil pesto. On first look at it i thought it was going to be a bit dry. I was pleasantly surpised that it was not.

    However we did not like it. The flavouring was too strong for us. My daughter had 1 piece of pasta and said no more. Neither my husband ir I finished it – both of us found ot way to overpowering.

    I would love to try the other flavours though….. though i do think $9 is a little steep as well.

    The basil pesto godsend

    Finally got my hands on a box of these at my local woolies. They sell out like hot cakes in my area compared to the other salad boxes!
    Even though it says serves four, it’s more like it serves 2-3 max, other than the salad being slight more expensive than the other salad kits from other grocery stores the flavour is there.
    Would wish there was more pasta in the kit compared to the veggies.

    Heat it up

    This was bought to a gathering we had for Christmas. It was badly touched at the bbq a d the comments were it was too oily. The next day for dinner I stir fried up a bag of mixed veg and added the pasta part of this salad. The pesto covered the veggies and it was beautiful! Highly recommend trying it this way if you’re not a fan of it cold like we found.

    Delicious, simple, and perfect for entertaining!

    We were looking forward to having friends over for lunch, and normally I would love spending time in the kitchen preparing the perfect meal. This particular weekend, though, life was a little crazy. The school year was nearly finished, and the two teachers in the house were pressed for time and stretched to our limits (and with bushfires on the doorstep, school days were decidedly different than they normally are anyway!). Our teenage kids would normally help out, but they were also busy with end of year excursions and activities. This time around, easy options had to win out!
    I picked out a couple of Woolworths Deli salads to go with the meat for the bbq, and I was so glad I did. Regular deli salads can get a bit samey – all creamy mayo dressings and heavy contents. These were totally different! I was able to prep the salads in less than a minute, but the ingredients were all fresh and high quality. The pesto sauce on the pasta was a nice change from creamy mayo based pasta salads, and the veggies added a light fresh element. All the premium parts of the salad were served with generous portions, too, so if needed it would be easy to stretch the salad by adding more baby spinach and cutting the cherry tomatoes. Everyone loved the salads, and the basil pasta one was a particular favourite of our two year old guest!
    I\’d definitely pick these up again for an easy, high quality addition to a meal. A home made salad would have taken more time and effort, this was just as nice and allowed me to focus on our guests and enjoying some time to relax rather than spending time in the kitchen preparing a meal!
