You can freeze Shrimp Alfredo for up to 2 months in heavy-duty portion control freezer-safe bags or containers.

The pasta would turn soft when thawed and reheated.

So, for that you can undercook the pasta slightly to avoid this, I would say do 5 mins high pressure.

Also, cream-based sauces have a tendency to separate.

If you feel the sauce had separated you can always add a few splashes of heavy cream before reheating the alfredo.
