Add the cream of potato soup and sour cream to a large glass bowl.

And, trust me, you will love it, because the creamy soup adds so much flavor to this dish.
Next, add 1-1/2 cups of mozzarella cheese to the bowl.
Add 1-1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, grated parmesan cheese, salt, and black pepper to the bowl and mix everything.

Cover the dish with tinfoil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil and bake another 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
If the potatoes are frozen cook for the entire 60 minutes, but if the potatoes are thawed, only cook for 30-40 minutes. Be sure to remove the tinfoil halfway through.
