I've got a can of chopped tomatoes but loads of spices. Any ideas for something other than tomato pasta?

How about a braised chicken or a spicy lamb stew? You could also make chili!

Without knowing what spices you have... you might want to try Shakshouka, a North African skillet dish for eggs easy-up poached in spicy tomato sauce. Very delicious. David Lebovitz and Smitten Kitchen have recipes.
Here's another recipe for shakshouka, on this site:
Harissa, tortellini soup, salsa, and bread
how about a mexican style pot roast adding some chile peppers for a bit of heat, then eat it pulled apart on tortillas with all the fixin's that you like best
How about a curry? You could use this recipe for Shrimp Madras curry as a base, varying the spices and using chicken or lamb instead of shrimp. 1 can of tomatoes is fine in place of the two fresh tomatoes.
