Shulchan Arukh, 16th Century

כתוב בתורה: "לא תבשל גדי בחלב אמו" (שמות כג, יט; לד, כו; דברים יד, כא) ג' פעמים; אחד לאסור בשול, ואחד לאסור אכילה, ואחד לאסור הנאה. 

“You shall not boil a baby goat in its mother’s milk” [is written in Torah] three times:  Once for the prohibition of cooking (the two together), once for the prohibition of eating, and once for the prohibition of deriving pleasure (from eating the cooked mixture).   

Translation from Soncino Classics, Version 2.2.
