"Make the most of the flavors of summer in a plate of pasta. Here we use homemade orecchiette pasta (watch our how-to for step-by-step instructions), but of course you can use dried orecchiette or your favorite pasta shape instead and pair it with delicious sweet corn, salty bacon bits, burst cherry tomatoes, and the crowning glory: a soft-cooked egg. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, leave out the bacon and egg and you’ll still have a super flavorful, delicious summer pasta."
