I'm going to have a bunch of ingredients left over from another recipe. What can I make?

I bought too much for the recipe (veggie heavy turkey meatloaf) I'm making and I'm going to have a lot of left over veggies. I also have some beef patties I won't get a chance to grill, so I was thinking of using the ground beef in something else. But I need ideas.
Here is what I have: half a zuccini, half a yellow squash, a couple carrots, about a cup baby portabella mushroom slices, onions, garlic, celery, black beans, parsley, oatmeal. And 4 angus beef patties.
I only have a modestly stocked pantry, but I do have things like tomato sauce, pasta, common herbs and spices (oregano, thyme, cumin, etc . . .)
Bonus points if its something that will freeze well.
I was kind of thinking of throwing everything in a slowcooker with tomato sauce but I have no idea if that would be a horrible horrible mistake - so suggestions welcome!
