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.

    Kids loved it! Easy, tasty pesto salad

    So it was easy to find in woolworths that’s a plus. Just choosing one was hard!! Haha

    It was pretty easy to open. It got stuck a bit, but might have been me. Once open there was no instructions. But it was self explanatory I just poured it all in a mixed it up.

    It came with 5 tomatoes for severing of 4 people. So some fights might break out of how wants the extra one!

    Serving size I think it would serve two or three at the most. I served mine with salmon. It was very tasy and very convenient.

    My one year old loved it ate the rocket and all! So that’s a plus.

    All up I would recommend this as it’s an easy healthy side when you have no much time to prepare.

    Delicious Pesto without any effort

    This pesto was surprisingly delicious! I could taste each ingredient and had no concerns about what I was actually eating! My family enjoyed a quick healthy meal by just adding some grilled chicken! But it’s also great all on its own

    Fast & easy dinner

    Pros:
    – there is an even number of tomatoes
    – generous amount of fresh rocket
    – very generous portion of parmesan!
    – makes an easy dinner and or lunch- divide into bowls, grab a fork and dinner is done!
    – this particular salad is vegetarian

    Cons:
    – there was a large amount of chopped parsley STEMS, not leaves in my salad. This meant the parsley flavour was barely noticeable in the salad
    – the plastic insert is not recyclable, a very big no no for today’s climate!
    – this salad is vegetarian… Others include chicken, so I personally would have expected more pasta to compensate for the fact it is cheaper than chicken

    I would not purchase salads in plastic, but at the reduced prices or on special they make a cheap meal!

    Great salad..a lot of unnecessary plastic packaging.

    The salad was fantastic. We used it as a meal on its own, instead of as side dish, which I saw most people had done.

    I’m a vegetarian and had about 1/4 for lunch. It was very filling and tasted great. My husband is not a salad fan. He commented that it smelt really good’ started picking at mine and then ate about 1/2 the pack for his lunch.

    I really liked the amount of rocket in it. Most pasta salads are just pasta with tiny bits of veg. This seemed to be a more balanced meal.

    Only negative would be there is a lot of plastic packing it. I know Woolworths are being criticised for their packaging of fruit and veg at the moment. Maybe they could adjust packaging somehow.

    the best healthy & convenient side salad

    this was the most beautiful side salad i have ever got from a supermarket and will definately purchase again because it is so tasty, healthy and convenient for a quick meal with chicken or something else especially in the warmer months. My kids raved over it and said that they hoped i would have it next time they visit.

    Need a little salt

    This salad had a nice creamy pesto sauce on penne pasta, 4 cherry tomatoes, 1 per serve. The parmesan cheese was nice sprinkled on top. I did need to add a little salt. I wanted to mix the salad together in the container, but container was broken. The sauce went over something’s. The plastic container was very flimsy and thin. Besides from the container breaking and needing to add a little salt I would still buy it.

    Pesto Salad is a great side salad and can be easily turned into a main meal

    First impression was the price, a bit expensive for a salad! However, add it all up it’s not bad. Great flavour in the pasta and i enjoyed the addition of rocket & parsley. Serving size as a side for the pesto pasta was great for 4 people.

    Perfect side to go with dinner!

    Hubby and I were impressed with the basil pesto pasta salad. Tasty, fresh and right balance of ingredients! Our two boys weren’t overly impressed – the rocket put them off! But I’d definitely consider buying again!

    Not enough pesto

    I was really looking forward to the pesto pasta salad but was a bit disappointed. There was far too much mayo and not enough pesto. It made it taste like a regular my pasta salad with a but of basil. If there was much less mayo and more pesto this would be a regular at my house. It was super convenient and the packaging was excellent. Really easy to open and big enough to mix the salad properly without spilling any. The pasta was cooked well, the salad items were fresh and the parmesan was a nice touch. Sadly I couldn’t get past the flavour. If they put a decent amount of pesto in I would have loved this.

    Nice salad full of flavour

    Firstly this product was hard to find in stores as it was not located in the salad section. When transporting it home it leaked out of the packaging. When I opened it to severe half of the cherry tomatoes were too soft and wrinkly to eat, which was disappointing. Other than these issues the salad was full of flavour and was nice to eat. Not sure we would buy it regularly because of the price.

    Very tasty but too small to feed 4

    I enjoyed the jam-packed flavour of creamy, zesty zingy sauce. I was able to finish the tub on my own. Definitely wouldn’t feed 4 even as a side salad.
    I would buy for the convenience when stuck on a salad, and keen to try the other flavours.
    The cherry tomatoes gave a fresh balance to the thick creamy sauce.

    All the family loved this healthy salad

    This salad was beautifully fresh and tasty. We are a family of seven and it was enough for a side for all of us. Even the 7 and 5 year old loved it. It was quick and easy to add to our meal, making a meal on a hot night a little more special.

    These salads are now my go to for any meal

    The basil pesto salad was delicious, my entire family ( yes, even the picky kids) enjoyed every mouthful. This salad complemented as a side dish for steak and chips, and there was leftovers to take to work the next day. So fresh and full.
