Summer Squash Soup

Loved the flavors in the soup I made tonight!  I found the the recipe on Martha Stewart's website, which has been a reliably good source of recipes for me.  The only modification I made to the recipe was to use an immersion blender instead of a food processor to puree the soup.

2 small garlic cloves, minced (divided)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
