I have excess tomatoes, garlic, and carrots

What can I do with them? I don't want them to go bad. They don't have to be all in the same dishes... If I have to, I can buy meat to complete the recipe.

Thanks in advance!!!!

What type and size tomatoes? If they are Roma's, cut in half the long way get out some of the seeds then fill with a mix of buttered bead crumbs a little finely chopped onion and parsley add some parmesan and put into the oven til hot and the top golden. Some honey glazed carrots and baked salmon or chicken beasts dipped in seasond bread crumbs dinner is ready a green salad of some sort would also be nice. Any questions I'll try to help.

Gouda would be great any cheese that you enjoy just shred it if possible so it melts quicker and panko I love and would work as well, I'd crush it just a little to make it finer and add some butter to it, makes it much tastier and decadent and then you're set...I put mine in a 350-375 oven watch closely and pull them out after the cheese melts and the top is golden..Enjoy

How many tomatoes???

If you have plenty, you could use all of those ingredients, and buy some pasta and meat and give a go at making your own homemade pasta sauce. Mmmmm... garlic, onion, carrot, gouda, and some herbs sound like a great sauce to me!
