Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in pan over medium heat until hot. Add red bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Sauté 3 minutes. Stir in corn and next 5 ingredients. Add clams; cover and cook 5 minutes.
Stir in mussels and shrimp. Cover and cook 6 minutes or until clams and mussels open and shrimp turn pink. Discard clams or mussels that do not open. Return sausage to pan. Stir in orzo and 1/2 cup parsley; toss well. Transfer to a large platter; sprinkle with remaining parsley. Serve immediately.
