These are lovely with rice or pasta and a vegetable/ salad medley such as the minted courgette cubes and potato wedges or not quite risotto and lemon dressed leaves. You could stuff smaller tomatoes as a party snack or side dish.

For those who can eat wheat...

Simply use wheat bread.

If you have sun dried tomatoes left, try the pepper pasta or quick fling pasta. If you have basil left, try the simple ratatouille or Scarlett’s secret sauce. Leftover tarragon can be used in the mushroom provençal.
