Rinse venison, pat dry, and cut into 3/8 inch cubes.
Peel onions and carrots. Rinse celery and remove strings if desired. Cut all vegetables into small cubes. Peel and finely chop garlic.
In a heavy pot, heat oil. Add venison and sauté until browned on all sides. Transfer to a plate and season with salt and pepper.
Add vegetables to the pan and cook, stirring, until golden-brown.

Add tomatoes with their juice and the broth to the pot. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat for 1 hour.
After cooking the sauce for about 50 minutes, bring plenty of salted water to a boil and cook pasta according to package directions until al dente. Coarsely chop chocolate.
