I was very impressed with this dish (although one of my roommates did not care for the sweet flavor the Pepsi gave to the potaotes) and will definitely make it again. I think, next time, I may try it with Root Beer to see how that effects things! I may also try cooking it for a shorter period of time, like -say- 1 hour/pound to a maximum of 2 hours/inch of thickness. But, that aside, this was a very good recipe and everyone in the house really liked it!
