Yes.
Use the frozen tomatoes for a different recipe, one where the tomatoes are cooked

Not so much a matter of flavor, but freezing will burst cells in the tomato causing them to be mushy . Frozen tomatoes work very well for cooked sauces, but this wouldn't be a great choice.

Just a wee bit, but still much better flavor than tomatoes in January at the market. I have been freezing them whole for years and its really worth the minor effort.

I would recommend making this pasta with the tomatoes that are still coming out of your garden now, and saving the frozen ones for a different dish later on.
