    I've never heard of it. Where did you get this idea?

    Sure you use skim or diluted milk so it doesnt scald.
    As pointed out in the link, many boxed mac n cheeses call for
    boiling milk and water together, then cooking the pasta in it.
    Question is, do you think it makes any real difference in flavour?
    I dont.
