Roasted tomato sauce, put tomatoes in pan in higher heat oven, with olive oil, salt and pepper till bubbling and browned, pour over pasta of any kind, add red pepper flakes and basil, sprinkle parmesan cheese on top. YUM

Too many tomatoes?!? No such thing!! LOL.
They're my all time favourite food.

Last year I froze TONS of pasta sauce, all with slightly different ingredients. It was wonderful to have them all winter.
I also used my dehydrator to "sun-dry" a big bag of sliced tomatoes. Fabulous for pasta and pestos. I also froze some pre-made basil pestos with variations of ingredients such as pine nuts, walnuts, kale, sun-dried tomatoes, swiss chard.

Otherwise, soups are great too. But primarily I like to put up sauces & pestos.

Stuffed tomatoes...cut the tops off and scoop the insides out. Stuff with homemade dressing (bread, onion, sage, water or broth) and bake in the oven until heated through.

Tomato sandwiches and gazpacho.

But really what you should do is just find a basic freezable tomato sauce recipe and make huge batches and freeze it. I really like Mario Batali's it includes carrots, thyme, onion and garlic and that's about it. I also like Marcella Hazan's tomato butter sauce.
