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

The Woolworths Basil Pesto Pasta Salad Kit is 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.

    Quick and easy

    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.

    we love basil pesto pasta salad

    It is such a busy time of year, I was running around preparing to attend our local carols when I had purchased the Woolworths basil pesto salad the night before for the day. It was so convenient having everything all ready available, all i done was cut the tomatoes up for the kids and placed it all together in the container before i served it up with our bbq lunch. The kids thoroughly enjoyed it, as did we and it fed all 5 of us as a side for lunch, such a win. Thanks again MoM for allowing us to be apart of this trial, we will be purchasing again. It not only was convenient for a busy family but also delicious.

    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!

    Healthy Salad in Seconds!

    After daycare pickup on a 40 degree day and one crazy toddler trying to make her way to the confectionery aisle, it was a win for me to grab a kit of pre made Classic Greek Salad! No more having to remember all the separate ingredients then run halfway across the store for the dressing. My family of four, all with different taste buds enjoyed the salad. It was a bit hard to open the kit as I realised only after there was a tab to do so. My husband thought the dressing could be more flavoursome but I think it was just right especially for a 6 and 3 year child. The ingredients were fresh and not soggy. I gained more tomato per serving by cutting the cherry tomatoes into four. Some of the half sliced cucumbers were a hit with the kids as they said it was like their meal was smiling at them!! There is even some left over salad for me tomorrow. That will be essential especially when I realise I\’ve fed the kids breakfast and forgotten about me!

    Mum’s fav, kids not so sure...

    Mum loved the flavour, subtle crunch and creaminess of the pesto, Master 6 and 8 weren’t big fans of the basil flavour and said it was “slimy” but they’re pretty fussy, Miss 2 ate it all up so that’s a good sign, and Dad loved the flavour but did say “too much green stuff” (the rocket) for him (see where the kids get their fussiness from!?)

    Good quick salad

    We bought this product from Woolworths. First of all, I thought the price was a bit steep, $9 for a 500g salad that was to feed four people.
    The kit needs to be assembled, grated parmesan cheese (which most probably would have tasted better with shaved parmesan), 5 cherry tomatoes (although I cut them in half, more would have been nicer and parsley (which was a mountain and very disproportioned).
    I assume this is supposed to be family friendly. Although my kids love pesto pasta, they were reluctant to have it as it was covered in a thick bed of rocket. The flavour itself was ok, a little bit too much vinegar and the pasta tasted over cooked and grainy.

    This was nice to try, but I do not think I would buy it again.

    Delectable pasta salad

    I tried the basil pesto pasta salad and it taste so good and fulling. All the ingredients compensate each other in taste. If you are short in time this is a good salad kit to have as you just toss everything and your salad is done and ready to serve. It says that it serves 4 but for me i think it might just serve 2. A bit pricey for me since you can make a big batch of this salad with all the ingredients readily available at the grocery. But as i said if you are short on time just grab this kit and ready to go. But overall i big a thumbs up for this salad kit.

    Quick, easy, different & healthy

    Absolutely loved the diversity to the plain old woollies pasta salad selection. I purchased the Spanish Style Pasta Salad Kit for a Christmas Day lunch side. The tomato basil dressing was really tasty. The salad looked appealing and I didn’t even transfer it to another container as the container worked really well to mix everything in and serve. It was enjoyed by everyone at the table and lots of conversation about how it was nice to have something different. Next time I wouldn’t add in all the chopped up basil, it was a bit overpowering. I do also think it is a bit expensive at $9. There were others reduced for around $7, I would say this is a really good price to pay.

    Quick and delicious healthy pasta salad.

    I was really surprised at the amount you get out of this pasta salad. I loved how the pasta is separated from the cheese and tomatoes. I shared this with my daughter and we both liked the pesto and cheese flavour. It’s a quick and easy vegetarian lunch that I would buy again. You don’t even need to heat it up.

    Great for a small gathering

    Serving sizes complement a small picnic or bbq not necessarily the extended family Christmas lunch get together. Tasted great and loved the convenience as not otherwise something I would make from scratch at home. My mum did comment on it being a bit peppery but that may have been a combination of a few too many Christmas champers and any other item on her plate from the lunch buffet we prepared that included this salad

    General consensus - bloody beautiful

    Served this as a side in a Christmas Day lunch buffet for extended family. Got the thumbs up from everyone – chose the basil pesto pasta salad option as it met the needs of the vegetarians present but also meant that whatever meat people chose from the varying options would complement the salad, as some of the others options already contain meat.
