What? Has anybody else ever heard of this?

I was on line looking over various macaroni & cheese recipes when I came across a very old one dating back to Thomas Jefferson's time. The directions call for the pasta to be boiled in a combination of milk & water. I have never heard of pasta being boiled in anything except plain old salted water. Has anyone out there tried this milk method? What does the milk during the boiling process do for the pasta (if anything)?
