Stir tomatoes, mushrooms, olives, and oregano into meat mixture. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
Spread half of the cooked spaghetti in prepared baking dish. Top with half of the meat mixture and half of the cheddar cheese. Repeat layers.
In a medium bowl combine cream of mushroom soup and the water; spread over top layer in baking dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until heated through.
