Author Notes: This is a delicious Italian pasta recipe, that my whole family can't wait to eat, this recipe screams summer and all good things, the saltiness of the pancetta and the crunchiness of the corn and celery all mixed together with pasta, mozzarella and cherry tomatoes, and of course the fresh herbs and olive oil. Perfection on a plate.An Italian in my kitchen
