I haven't heard what is the best dinner you ever made over a one burner stove? There has to be something better then Spaghetti and meatballs!

Have made a ton of good dinners on a one-burner stove.  It would be imposible to pick the best, but three relatively recent ones come to mind.

Last year outside of Eureka, MT we made pasta with linguica, fresh spinach, red onion and garlic.

Earlier this year it was pasta with portobello mushrooms, garlic and onions topped with shaved asiago cheese.

While camping on Anthrax Island we had liver with fava beans and a nice Chianti.   ;D

Linguine and Clam Sauce with fresh Parmesan Cheese and Basil. If I can get a little fresh shrimp, so much the better. I also like Shrimp Fried Diablo too.

We've been biking for a little more than a month now, started in Montana and are now in indiana.  The most memorable dinner we've had was in between Yellowstone and Teton national parks on
 the snake river.  Italian deer sausage from a hunter friend, cuscus and sauteed squash and zuccini.

Being a cook I can tell I'm going to have a problem keeping my "Kitchen Kit" down to a reasonable size. I keep trying to load up a dutch oven... and I can't seem to talk myself out of it... I've cooked on the little pots and pans that where popular in the 70's and 80's but haven't tried the newer titanium kits. I can't see where they will do any better then the older gear... Nothing cooks as good as a dutch oven when you need a dutch oven... ARRGGHH!!!!

You perhaps are looking in the wrong places; single burner gourmet cooking has been perfected for decades. Try backpacking shops for books on thme topic.
Look in used book stores for the series "Roughing It Easy."

"Roughing it Easy"

Now that sounds like a fun book :) Just don't let my wife know I'm looking for more cookbooks... after I hit around 500 cookbooks she started to get twitchy on the subject...

...what could possibly be better than pasta with marinara sauce, salad and bread after a long day in the saddle! ...some other options I have been experimenting with (for an up coming self supported tour of the Adirondack Park Loop) is dehydrating my own "real food".  Prepared, seasoned beans (pinto, black, soy, others...) dry really well as does white or brown rice and reconstitutes extremely well. Dehydrated onions and spicy salsa are a great addition and makes the dish very flavorful...bring along some tostada chips and you have a great one pot meal, especially if you can find fresh lettuce and tomato. (Boil the water, add the mix, stir, let rest while you set up your tent and dinner is ready!) This mix is very light weight, easy to pack, stores well and re-hydrates nicely.   Also for cooler temps I like to make a hefty soup mix of dried vegetables, rice or pasta (previously cooked), vegetable boullion. If you have a dehydrator, experiment with everything...the possibilities are endless. You can make fresh fruit roll ups. I have even made roll ups using a thick protein powder mix, it is really a great snack and an easy source of protein...especially important for us vegetarians to be mindful of.

Ok I understand the whole pasta and rice thing to keep up the energy levels, but I can't live on just that.  Are there some cookbooks or recipes that have more than just those ? ???

I have yet to find it in 40+ years of mountaineering and bike touring.
May the wind be at your back!
