Roasted Broccoli with Lemon

From: EatingWell

Maybe you've never considered cooking broccoli this way, but roasting yields surprisingly good results. The heat concentrates the flavors and caramelizes the natural sugars. A touch of olive oil gives it a crispy, delicious finish.

4 cups  broccoli florets
1 tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon  salt
  Freshly ground pepper
  Lemon wedges
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. Toss broccoli with oil, salt and pepper. Place on a large baking sheet (not air-insulated) and roast until the broccoli is tender and blackened on the bottom, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately, with lemon wedges.

I buy a lot of frozen broccoli, because it is WAY cheaper that way at my local Walmart- plus their fresh produce is sometimes questionable... Do you think this recipe would work with frozen?
