6 ounces provolone cheese, sliced (he used more cuz we like CHEESE)

1 1/2 cups sour cream ( used about 2 cups)j

6 ounces Mozzarella cheese (shredded) (he used more cuz we like Cheese)

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (he just shook the cheese out of the container until it covered the top of the dish)
