How Do You Feel About Eggplant?

I really love it, but very few people in my life feel the same way.  I recently came across a recipe for Eggplant Parmesan that suggests roasting the slices (after salting, draining, and rinsing them, of course) before wrapping them around cheese, setting them in tomato sauce and topping them with more cheese.  I've never heard of the pre-roasting technique, and I'm wondering if I could get the naysayers in my life to give eggplant a whirl by cooking it this way.

Do you love eggplant?  Hate it?  Willing to be an adventuresome eater?

I'm going to try this, minus mint, plus basil.

i really don't like it. when i was younger i refused to eat it. i thought it was at least something i would grow into. but even now its hard for me to get down. there is no excuse for putting eggplant in a perfectly good dish when zucchini could be used. i effing LOVE zucchini.
