Drain clams, reserving juice; set aside. In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, celery, red pepper and savory, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Gradually stir in reserved clam juice and milk until smooth; bring to boil and boil, stirring often, until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir in clams and corn.
Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until tender but firm, 8 to 10 minutes; drain and return to pot. Stir in sauce until coated. Transfer to 8-inch (2 L) square glass baking dish.
Topping: In small bowl, stir bread crumbs with parsley; drizzle with butter and toss to combine. Sprinkle over pasta. Bake on rimmed baking sheet in 375°F (190°C) oven until bubbly and topping is golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.
