I happen to love eggplant parm and other dishes with eggplant. I do NOT like the skin, as it is tough when cooked. If cooks would peel it before cooking, I think more people would enjoy it. I like it also cut into strips, dipped in egg wash and coated with Italian bread crumbs or panko and fried until it has a crunchy outside. Then we dip it into a tomato sauce. It's even good peeled, cubed and sauteed with olive oil,onions, peppers, and tomatoes. The recipe got a 2, only because of the skin on the eggplant.

Want NOT a fan of this dish. I do not recommend this to anyone. It may have been the eggplant. I loved the tomato sauce though.
