We usually roast it.  I just bought 2 bunches at the farmer's mkt w/o realizing we didn't eat the ones I bought last week.  Do you think I could freeze it as is in a ziploc bag, then dress it frozen (salt-pepper-olive oil) and defrost/roast as usual (10-20 min at 350-375)?

Yes, you can freeze it.  Don't defrost it.  Put it directly into the hot oven to roast still frozen, it'll take a bit longer to cook and it will be softer in texture, but the quick defrost will lessen the textural damage.  Or stick it in a soup you're planning to puree.  After freezing/defrosting it will be fairly mushy.
