Inter were second best throughout the encounter, with Hector Cuper's side having no answers to the positive attacking play of Carlo Ancelotti's charges.
Kaka (pictured) justified his selection once again, netting one goal and causing untold problems for Inter's overworked back-line.
Milan's opener was a touch fortuitous as Filippo Inzaghi deflected Andrea Pirlo's free kick beyond Francesco Toldo.
The killer second goal came moments after the re-start, as Andrei Shevchenko and Gennaro Gattuso created an opening for Kaka which the Brazilian gleefully headed home.
Shevchenko had a superb game and he added to his fine scoring record against Inter with the third.
Obafemi Martins gave Inter fans something to cheer about with a blistering goal, but it was scant consolation for the 'home' side.
Lazio bounced back to winning ways in Serie A, with Sinisa Mihajlovic's second half goal handing the capital club a 1-0 win over Chievo.
Roberto Mancini's men have struggled of late, both in Europe and domestically, but they showed real grit to see off Chievo.
Luigi Del Neri's Chievo battled bravely for long periods, but they had no answers when Mihajlovic's free kick was deflected in on 64 minutes.
Parma continue to look like title contenders and the Gialloblu ground out another three points with a 1-0 win over Sampdoria.
Adriano's early goal was enough to keep Parma in touch with the leaders.
Juventus head the table but left it late before seeing off Bologna.
Mark Iuliano gave Juventus the lead, but Giuseppe Signori's penalty shortly afterwards brought Bologna level.
Bologna showed real defensive grit but succumbed ten minutes from time when David Trezeguet netted from the penalty spot, after Gianluca Zambrotta tumbled in the box.
Roma remain unbeaten but they surrendered top spot in Serie A after being held to a 0-0 draw at Siena.
Both Udinese and Modena had easy away wins over Ancona and Empoli respectively.
Andrea Caracciola netted a superb hat-trick as Brescia beat Lecce 4-1. Both sides finished with ten men as Marius Stankevicius and Christian Ledesma both saw red 15 minutes from time.
Roberto Baggio grabbed the spotlight late on with a neat finish.
Perugia and Reggina both finished their 0-0 draw with 10 men, as Souleymane Diamoutene, for the hosts, followed David Di Michele off the pitch before the end of the 90 minutes.
