Double Cheese Macaroni

I found this recipe on the back of a box of Ronzoni Quick Cook pasta.  I adapted it by doubling the recipe and adding some steamed broccoli and chopped cooked chicken to make it a meal.  I was making it for someone else but I took plenty of sample bites to know that it's good.  I'm planning to make it for us soon!  Here is their original recipe that serves 4.

Double Cheese Macaroni

1/2 box (2 cups) Ronzoni Quick Cook macaroni style pasta
1 jar alfredo pasta sauce
2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 c grated parmesan cheese
2 T seasoned bread crumbs
1 T melted butter

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat alfredo sauce and cheddar cheese.  Drain pasta but reserve some of the pasta water.  Add pasta to sauce and add some pasta water if it's to thick.  Mix together parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and butter.  You can just sprinkle it on top or if your pan is oven proof put it under the broiler a little to brown the bread crumbs.
