I followed the directions precisely, only using chicken sausage, as I could not find hot Italian turkey sausage. After stirring in the garlic and salt until fragrant, I added the wine (Gallo Extra Dry Vermouth), covered the pot, and turned the heat up to high. When I heard what sounded like boiling, I removed the lid. A tower of flames immediately shot up high enough to singe my hair. Fortunately, the fire quickly subsided, and no serious harm was done.
The soup was pretty good, if a little too picante. It just needed salt.
