    While the pasta is cooking, puree all of the blue cheese sauce ingredients in a high-powered blender until smooth.
    In a large pan, saute the onions and Brussels sprouts in a little white wine until the onions are translucent and the sprouts are tender, about 10 minutes. Add apples to pan at this time if using.
    Add the pasta and the parsley to the pan, pour in the blue cheese sauce and cook until heated through, stirring to coat everything with the sauce.
    Divide among 6 plates and sprinkle with additional parsley. Serve immediately.
